Are Girls Less Fit Than Boys?
Raithel, Kathryn Simmons
Physician and Sportsmedicine, v15 n11 p156-57,159-60,162-63 Nov 1987
The 1985 National School Population Fitness Survey found that girls aged 6 to 17 generally scored lower than boys on all test items except flexibility. Possible reasons are physiological factors, lack of opportunity, and psychological barriers. Changes in the law affecting women's athletic programs are reviewed. (MT)
