Olympic Women/ What kind of Power?
I have been noticing sports commentary of the Olympic Coverage. The headline for one article is, "Women Offer Greatest Triumphs." In another article, there is a long introduction about Kerri Walsh and Misty May-Treanor with "biological clocks ticking louder than rock music." In a third, there is a long description about Chinese women gymnasts who are "as tiny as charms on a charm bracelet."
Has anyone else been taken by the contradictions in the images of the world's most powerful women in sports?
