Gender equality and the Olympic programme / Michele K. Donnelly

Donnelly, Michele K.

Edité par Routledge - 2023

This innovative study examines the Olympic programme from a critical feminist perspective, to shed new light on the issues of gender and inclusion at the Olympic Games and in the Olympic Movement. Incorporating both quantitative and qualitative data, the book identifies and analyzes the changes – and remaining gender differences – made on the Olympic programmes for London 2012, and each of the subsequent Summer and Winter Olympic Games (Sochi 2014, Rio 2016, and PyeongChang 2018), as well as the Tokyo 2020 and Beijing 2022 Games. The book draws on the International Olympic Committee's (IOC) own publications, information from International and National Sport Federations, and media sources to describe and explain the IOC’s slow and uneven progress toward gender equality at the Olympic Games.
