Sports Bloggers with a Gender Lens

Ms. Magazine profiles three women who write on the intersection of feminism and athletics. My favorite is Caitlin Constantine, speaking here about the objectifying coverage of female Olympians:

Here you have all of these driven, focused women pursuing their moment of glory, a moment that comes around once every four years, and all anyone can talk about is what they look like! And then, of course, that sparked a reaction in which people criticized the criticism, and meanwhile I’m like “But what about the sports!?”

Women doing extraordinary things advance the cause of feminism more than legislation or activism ever can.
