Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Explores women's place in sport and exercise from a socioculture perspective.

Informed by feminism and the fields of anthropology and sociology of sport, this anthology investigates women's place in sport and exercise from a sociocultural perspective, documenting women's struggle into the sports arenas of male hegemony. The nine ethnographic case studies explore issues of identity, embodiment, and meaning in various sports and exercise, including triathlons, aerobics, basketball, bodybuilding, weightlifting, motorcycle riding, softball, casual exercise, and rugby.

“This collection of research studies highlights the changes that have taken place with regard to cultural constraints on the somatic experiences of women. Bringing these constraints to greater awareness is an important step in breaking down the barriers that do not allow women to redefine their position in a male-dominated world.” — Archives of Sexual Behavior

"Brilliantly written, vibrant testimonies of women’s lived experiences in physical culture." — Geneviève Rail, editor of Sport and Postmodern Times

"This book offers selections by some of the best and brightest in the field." — Alan M. Klein, author of Little Big Men: Bodybuilding Subculture and Gender Construction

Contributors include Anne Bolin, Dona Davis, Shari L. Dworkin, Jane Granskog, P. David Howe, Barbara Joans, Pirkko Markula, Terese M. Peretto Stratta, and Faye Linda Wachs.

Anne Bolin, Professor of Anthropology at Elon University, competes in amateur women's bodybuilding. Jane Granskog is Professor of Anthropology at California State University at Bakersfield and an elite Master's (over age forty) triathlete.
