Media

I am presently taking a media and gender class and would like some information for the term paper I have due in this class. I was interested in writing about the coverage of women's sports, specifically basketball, by the media. I have already visited the Women's Sports Foundation home page, but I need more information than they provide. Could you please direct me to any web sites, magazines, books that deal with this issue. I would also appreciate any theoretical works on this issue. Thank you for your time. I appreciate any help you can provide.

Thanks for your note to Feminist.com. To help with your paper on the media's coverage of women's sports, I suggest you:

  1. Look through past issues of Ms. Magazine. This has been an often mentioned subject in the pages of Ms.
  2. Read the two new women's sports magazines: Jump and Conde Naste Sports for Women.
  3. Contact FAIR--Fairness and Accuracy In Reporting. They have a women's desk, which has tackled this issue a little. (Based in New York City)
  4. Reference the work of Mariah Burton Nelson--author of The Stronger Women Get the More Men Love Football (available at the Feminist.com Bookstore under "Miscellaneous") and Are We Winning Yet? How Women Are Changing Sports and Sports Are Changing Women (currently out of stock but possibly available at a library or used bookstore).
I hope these suggestions help.
