McLellan, Evelyn Louise (1998) Women, men and sports : planning for change. Masters thesis, Concordia University.
This study addresses gender inequity in college sports and in sports in general. An account of women's history in sport and research literature from the 1960's to the present, indicate that resistance to the male control of sport, have occurred. As well, there have been changes in many areas of sport. However, sport is still very much a male dominated institution. An exploratory study of female athletes at a private college in Montreal is presented with the intention of discovering whether college sports are as inequitable as sports in general; if the research reflects the situation of female college athletes; and if these athletes have any suggestions for changes. Finally, it is argued that a strategy to generate change at the college level would be to develop a sports feminist course based on critical and feminist pedagogy.
