The typical female sports fan remains very different from her male counterparts. In their insightful and engaging book, "Sportista," Andrei S. Markovits and Emily Albertson examine the significant ways many women have become fully conversant with sportsOCoacquiring a knowledge of and passion for them as a way of forging identities that until recently were quite alien to women.
"Sportista" chronicles the relationship that women have developed with sports in the wake of the second wave of feminism of the late 1960s and early 1970s. The changes women athletes have achieved have been nothing short of revolutionary. But, as Markovits and Albertson argue, womenOCOs identities as sports fans, though also changed in recent decades, remain notably different from that of men. "Sportista" highlights the impediments to these changes that women have faced and the reality that, even as bona fide fans, they OC speakOCO sports differently from and remain largely unaccepted by men.
