Women sportscasters are still subjected to gendered and racialized mistreatment in the workplace and online. In On the Sidelines: Gendered Neoliberalism and the Female Sportscaster (University of Nebraska Press), Guy Harrison argues that gendered neoliberalism—a cluster of exclusionary twenty-first-century feminisms—maintains this status quo. Our reviewer Britt-Marie Ringfjord finds theories and empirical material useful for teaching gender in sport media and journalism to university students.
