We are constantly hearing about football, baseball, and basketball. These may be well loved sports that men play, but women play the same things. The only time that women of sports are in the media is when there is a controversy or if the women playing are "hot" (female football leagues). Only then do we hear that they are in Playboy or modeling, or cheating on their husbands. There may be some positive media, but it is usually geared towards men. That is all and well, but can't we have some positive feedback about their game and how well they played it?
In general, the media coverage of women's sports has increased in relationship to in the past. There is more attention given to women's sports on major networks, such as ESPN, thereby increasing the exposure of women's sports across the United States, the world's foremost sporting country. In the past there was hardly any attention given to women within sports, but as of late coverage has increased drastically.
