Women in Sports

In this discussion-based course, students are invited to critically evaluate and discuss various topics related to the reality faced by women in sports (e.g., Title IX and what has changed since then for women in sports). We discuss topics related to women's experiences in sport on-the-field, and off-the-field (or the business of sports, such as diversity, equity and inclusion practices). Key ideas related to sports marketing (e.g., endorsements, sponsorships, consumer behavior related to women's sports) are covered. The experiences of women's sports around the world and future challenges related to women's sports are explored as well. Fall semester.
