Taking the turn of the season as an opportunity to reflect on some of the work I produced over the summer and sharing some of it here. I’m pleased to have spent another summer publishing some pieces about gender equality and women’s sports and to have broken into ESPNw and The Guardian with pieces about historic and outdated rules limiting the distance women cyclists can ride, the first woman to win the Tour de France (back when they allowed women to have a stage race). And an awesome opportunity to consider Serena Williams’ dominance and defeat at Arthur Ashe Stadium.
Just before this year’s Women’s World Cup began I published this story on TheAtlantic.com about the tense history between women’s sports and feminism and the vast gender inequalities that exist for women athletes.
I’ve had the opportunity to work on a few other pieces since I’ve been traveling up to the tournament. One on fans at the World Cup for Vice Sports. Then I weighed in on U.S. Soccer’s policy about off the field behavior as it relates to Hope Solo for New York Times’ Room for Debate. And if you are tired of reading about women’s soccer you can simply listen to me talk about the Women’s World Cup and gender inequality over on PRI’s To The Point. (So much easier.)
