Tilting the Playing Field: Women in Sports Media
Start Date: 3/7/2014Start Time: 5:00 PM
End Date: 3/7/2014End Time: 6:30 PM


In this special event from the International Communication Association and the George Washington University School of Media & Public Affairs, leading scholars and industry representatives will come together to discuss media coverage of women’s sports and issues, both on the screen and behind the scenes.

Panelists are Christine Brennan, award-winning USA Today sports columnist and commentator for ABC News, ESPN, NPR and Fox Sports Radio as well as the author of Best Seat in the House: A Father, A Daughter, A Journey Through Sports, the first father-daughter sports memoir written by a sports writer; Andrew Billings, author and/or editor of nine books, including Olympic Media: Inside the Biggest Show on Television and The Fantasy Sport Industry: Games within Games; Neena Chaudry, Senior Counsel and for the National Women's Law Center where she works primarily on litigation and advocacy to enforce and protect Title IX; and Erin Whiteside, whose research examines the relationship between sports media and society with a particular focus on the experiences of women working in sports, and the coverage of female athletes.

Based on Hardin, Whiteside and Billings work on women working in the sports industry, Title IX coverage and airtime dedicated to women’s sports, the panel will discuss the uphill battle women face in the industry. Brennan and Chaudry will respond to the research with their unique perspective as industry professionals.

This event is free and open to the public.
