Media Coverage Of Female Athletes

- This study intends to illustrate what kind of progression has taken place in regards to media coverage of female athletes competing in the Olympic games during 2012 and the most recent summer games of 2016.

Females have faced many forms of barriers since the start of the Olympics in 1896 when they were not even allowed to participate. This entry barrier was removed in the 1900, however even then females were only allowed to participate in sports that matched the public’s perception of “femininity” as sports were professed “masculine” (Markula,2009)....   [tags: Olympic Games, Summer Olympic Games]
