It’s not just The Sun who fails to adequately report women’s sports, but women sports reporters in the Daily Mail are made to report about men’s football! Can you believe that? And there are no men to report women’s sport?!
An example: today paper dated 30/3/10/ there are 14 pages devoted to men and ‘men’s sports’. And just 12 words (including initials and numbers) devoted to the results of women’s tennis – we don’t even know where the game was being held), that’s 2 measly lines in a mini-paragraph. This is really bad journalism. Even the sports reporter Laura Williamson.. had to write about men’s football!.
Just where are the women in the Daily Mail’s sports pages?
We want to read about riding, Cycling, women’s football, rally driving, badminton, swimming etc. Women aren’t a minority, we hare half the population! British sportswomen are being deliberately censored in the media unless of course they are wearing a pretty skirt in tennis or a royal is in it.
