Research shows that women receive less media coverage than their male counterparts and are not seen equally in the sports media landscape. This website, and capstone project, assesses the degree to which this inequality exists and attempts to offer solutions that might help solve the problem. As part of the project, 25 individuals in various sports media positions were interviewed, and their experiences and opinions, combined with previous literature on the topic of women in sports media, formed the basis for this site.
