SIDELINED: SPORTS, CULTURE, AND BEING A WOMAN IN AMERICA
Shrill meets Brotopia in this personal and researched look at women's rights and issues through the lens of sports, from an award-winning sports journalist and women's advocate
In a society that is digging deep into the misogyny underlying our traditions and media, the world of sports is especially fertile ground. From casual sexism, like condescending coverage of women’s pro sports, to more serious issues, like athletes who abuse their partners and face only minimal consequences, this area of our culture is home to a vast swath of gender issues that apply to all of us—whether or not our work and leisure time revolve around what happens on the field.
Due to the current COVID crisis, it's unclear whether I'll be able to take part in a book tour following the release of Sidelined in 2021.
