The 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup ushered in a new age for media coverage of women’s sport. A new survey of 1,950 male football fans from across the UK, recruited through football fan message boards, turned up three distinct groups of men based on their performances of masculinities: the progressive (24%), the overtly misogynistic (68%), and the covertly misogynistic (8%). Stacey Pope’s report from the study is illustrated with rather depressing quotes.

Originally published in 2014 and edited by Jennifer Hargreaves and Eric Anderson, the Routledge Handbook of Sport, Gender and Sexuality comprises 53 chapters penned by 68 internationally renowned sport scholars.

Lise Joern reviews a collected volume from the impressive “Football Research in an Enlarged Europe” series at Palgrave Macmillan, Female Football Players and Fans: Intruding into a Man’s World, edited by Gertrud Pfister and Stacey Pope. She appreciates the book and its contributions but ends on a note of pessimism about the situation for women’s football and its fans.
While sports in general has become considerably less of a man’s world, until quite recently sports fandom seemed to attract no women. Falsely, though, as witnessed by Stacey Pope’s latest book, The Feminization of Sports Fandom: A Sociological Study (Routledge). Aage Radmann studies female fandom in Sweden, and he is delighted with Pope’s research and findings.
