Gender Equality in Sports

86 Signatures Goal: 100

We have seen an increase in the number of females in the sporting arena recently. However, more could be done to ensure that females in the sports arena receive equal attention and opportunities as compared to the males. A recent survey done showed that only 5.0% of the televised sports covered on women sports. In print media, a study on 4 major newspapers also found that less than 5.0% of sports stories are on women. According to Donna Lopiano, PhD, male athletes received US$179 million more in athletic scholarships each year than their female counterparts. In our point of view, more funds could be channelled to develop potential sports women. As Mariah Burton Nelson\'s book, The Stronger Women Get, the More Men Love Football suggests, women are being put down or seem are poorer counterparts in terms of sporting talents. Because of all these, today the world perceives that women are not as capable or talented as men in terms of sporting ability. However, if we do not give them a chance, women are not able to prove their ability. Thus, more could be done to ensure gender equity in sports.
