Despite the fact that women play sports in huge numbers these days, the number of women covering sports is still small. This piece looks at why there are still so few women in sports journalism. Sources included Washington Post columnist Sally Jenkins and ESPN reporter Jane McManus. I learned a lot about something I hadn't thought that much about previously, simply because I don't watch sports myself (barring bits of the World Cup every four years). The reasons behind women's poor representation are varied and complex.
