Information and inspiration for the new female athlete. Ranging from rodeo cowgirls to Olympic champions and world-famous figures like Suzy Chaffee, Chris Evert, and Debbie Mayer, female athletes across the country talk to sports reporter Janice Kaplan about how sports shape their lives: the joy of being fit, the struggle against discrimination, the problem of conflicting demands. Janice Kaplan dispels the myths about women in sports and presents the facts: special strengths of the female physique; how sports enhance sex; the emotional benefits from athletics. Here, for the beginner, are descriptions of every kind of sport-from mountain-climbing and aerobic dance to basketball and weightlifting: WOMEN AND SPORTS provides guidelines to help you choose the right sport for you. Janice Kaplan confirms that every woman, whatever her age or condition, can look and feel better through sports. "An informative and very readable book....It's loaded with information about female athletes-their achievements-and the hurdles they had to get over to make those achievements."
