Women in the Olympic and Paralympic Games : an analysis of participation, leadership, and media coverage / Women's Sports Foundation

Women's Sports Foundation

Edited by Women's Sports Foundation - 2017

This report examines the status of women in the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games as both participants and leaders. More specifically, it examines the athletic opportunities, leadership positions, and media narratives afforded to female athletes to illuminate the place of women in the International and U.S. Olympic and Paralympic sport hierarchy. This report also assesses the extent to which the IOC, IPC, and USOC are fulfilling their stated missions with respect to fairness and gender equity, as well as whether or not past recommendations articulated by the Women’s Sports Foundation have been fulfilled. Despite significant changes over the histories of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, the data suggests much work remains, and this report is one means of accounting for such change.
