When someone turns the channel to ESPN, how often is a women’s sporting play on the Top 10? Chances are not very often. Almost all plays in the Top 10 are always men’s sports. Men’s sports get all the recognition on television. If scrolling through your channel listings, you will be lucky to see a few women’s games. But if you look for some kind of men’s game, you will find plenty. You will also have an option between which men’s sport to watch. This is all because women’s sports only receive 5% of all the air time on television while men’s sports are receiving 92%. And the 3% that’s left is designated for the gender neutral sports broadcasting. http://www.la84foundation.org/9arr/ResearchReports/ResearchReport2.htm
