S.H.E. is a force to be reckoned with
The S.H.E. Network keeps you informed & inspired. It’s the ultimate combination:
Sports. Health. Education. (And you.)
Every day girls’ and women’s opinions and thoughts on sports are not taken seriously, ignored or all-together laughed at. And for what reason? Because girls just don’t care about sports like boys do.
A new study published in Preventive Medicine is making an interesting new claim: constant family arguing can have a long-lasting impact on childhood obesity in girls.
Before Title IX’s passage in 1972, 90% of the coaches of women’s college teams were women. Today, that number has drastically decreased to a dismal 43.4%. If female participation in sports has increased from one in 27 in 1972 to two in five now, the dramatic decrease in female coaches can only mean one thing: male coaches have reaped the opportunities that increased female participation in sports has provided.
