ABSTRACT
This article discusses androgyny and gender differences within the medium of sports. While sports have generally been portrayed as a masculine endeavor, the author argues that women have as much of a right as men to engage in seemingly masculine sports. Women can earn self-respect and equality by playing sports that were once perceived as masculine. Segregation against women with these sports should be frowned upon, notes the author. The article also discusses the physiological differences between men and women, though notes that these differences should not be cited as a reason to discourage women from sports.
