#CoverTheAthlete – Exposing what’s wrong with media coverage for women

By November 21, 2015 No Comments

The movement #covertheathlete launched this awesome video exposing some of what’s wrong with media coverage of female athletes.

Sexist commentary, inappropriate interview questions, and articles commenting on physical appearance not only trivializes a woman’s accomplishments, but also sends a message that a woman’s value is based on her looks, not her ability. And it’s much too commonplace.

Just like us, they demand media coverage that focuses on the athlete and her performance, not her hair, clothes or body.

We love the video -which already have more and a million and a half views- and the movement. Visit their web and ask the media to #CoverTheAthlete!
