Report Shows Continued Growth
In Women’s College Athletics
WORK TO DO: In Atlanta, Karen Rosen notes the WSF report also showed the growth of women participating in college sports “slowed after 2000 and ‘still lags far behind men’s participation levels,’ and the percentage of female athletes has not kept pace with female enrollment.” WSF CEO Donna Lopiano said, “Women are still severely underrepresented” (ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 6/6). In N.Y., Bill Pennington notes almost 20% of schools in the study received a “failing grade, meaning they had a gap of more than 22 percentage points between the percentage of females athletes and the percentage of women in the student body” (N.Y. TIMES, 6/6).
HONOR: The Univ. at Buffalo, Tennessee Tech, Purdue and Washington State were honored yesterday by the WSF with the inaugural Opportunity Awards for "making gender equity a priority" (AP, 6/6).
