Women have participated in sports throughout history, but only in recent years has this participation become widespread and attained recognition equal to that of men. This clearly written, comprehensive, illustrated volume includes nearly 600 entries on all aspects of women and sports in the United States, from the different sports to people and events, from teams and organizations to laws and court cases. Readers will learn about the first woman to climb Mt. Everest, Stacy Allison; women who have run the Boston Marathon; how the Nineteenth Amendment has affected women's sports; female shotputters; and how steroids affect women's muscles.
