This perceptive, energetic learn explores U.S. women's recreation via ancient "points of change": specific items or developments that dramatically prompted either women's participation in activity and cultural responses to ladies athletes.


Beginning with the probably blameless ponytail, the topic of the advent, student Jaime Schultz demanding situations the reader to examine the historic and sociological value of now-common goods resembling activities bras and tampons and concepts corresponding to intercourse trying out and aggressive cheerleading. Tennis put on, tampons, and activities bras all facilitated women’s participation in actual tradition, whereas actual educators, the cultured health circulation, and identify IX inspired ladies to problem (or confront) coverage, monetary, and cultural obstacles.


While a few of these issues of swap elevated women's actual freedom and carrying participation, additionally they posed demanding situations. Tampons inspired menstrual disgrace, intercourse checking out (a instrument by no means used with male athletes) perpetuated narrowly-defined cultural norms of femininity, and the late-twentieth-century aesthetic health move fed into an unrealistic attractiveness ideal.
