clear column spacer In the interest of International Women’s Month I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate every woman who participates in the most testosterone-influenced institution, save war, known to man, (woman); sports.

In our male dominated society woman have carved out a place in athletics that is both utterly significant and courageously bold. Female advancement in society has coincided in small, but noticeable, part with their rise in athletics. There are viable professional sports leagues, and figures in the world of sport, who provide inspiration for a younger generation of women; women who will be given even more of an opportunity to succeed in the future. I know athletics aren’t a great place to look for role models, but it is highly unlikely that WNBA-er Lisa Leslie or LPGA tour member Nancy Lopez will be caught in some hotel room with cocaine and male strippers. It’s possible, but they will probably leave the drug charges, scandals and labor disputes to their male counterparts. By no means is the female struggle over and the road to equality may never be fully paved, but in today’s world women have cemented their place in the arena of athletics.
