Although women and young girls have come a long way since the passage of Title IX some thirty four years ago, there is still a lot to do.
The framers of the legislation and later on the guidelines understood that mandating equality in opportunity could not happen overnight, and that is the reason why the guidelines and the three-part participation test are crafted the way they are.
History has painted a picture of tremendous growth and acceptance of the female athlete, but she still battles the perception that girls and women are inherently less interested in sports than men and that providing women with opportunities cheats men out of resources.
This book gathers and presents topical research in the study of women in sports across a broad spectrum.
