dc.description.abstractThis qualitative study examined female sportswriters' influences on sports journalism. Interviews with 12 women who broke the locker room barrier in the 1970s and 1980s showed that the journalists fought hard to gain access to athletes' inner sanctum. Once they gained access, they endured harassment and embarrassment, but ultimately landed compelling stories from their subjects. The women broke many barriers for women sportswriters today. However, with a shrinking journalism industry and continuing discrimination, their efforts are unlikely to produce job equity in the near future for women journalists or for media coverage of women's sports.en_US
