"A timely and eye-opening look at women in sports journalism, this book provides valuable insight on the obstacles women have had to overcome in order to succeed within the "masculine" world of sports and the challenges they continue to face today. The stories of their struggles are at times infuriating, at times triumphant, but always compelling"-- Provided by publisher.
