The Guardian & Sexist Sports Pages


I had a quick look through the Sports pages and spotted just one paragraph ‘it was a fairly big one’, about two inches devoted to women’s horseracing.

There was a female sports journalist, and you guessed it, she was writing about men’s horse racing. Just like the woman in the Mail today writing about men’s football.

Well, it was better, but still a long way to go. That paragraph still felt like a ‘token’ though.

It did have men’s cycling – but no women cycling or even men’s/women’s mountainbiking. It certainly didn’t have any kilts in the paper either. Outrageous.

The Sun comes out the most PANTS newspaper for the diabolical ‘lack of women’s sports’.
