Julie DiCaro Writes About Sports, Culture, And Being A Woman In America
The #MeToo movement has touched every facet of the entertainment industry. But, what about the professional sports world?
In her new book, “Sidelined: Sports, Culture, and Being a Woman in America,” award-winning journalist, former sports radio host, and Deadspin editor Julie DiCaro tackles the myriad ways sexism pervades sports at all levels.
From condescending coverage of women’s pro sports, to high barriers that women face breaking into and excelling in sports media, to male athletes and managers who abuse their partners yet face minimal consequences, DiCaro examines the destructive impact that misogyny has on athletes, sports reporters, and fans alike.
