Will Female Kicker's Legal Victory Reshape Gender Roles in Athletics?
Suggs, Welch
Chronicle of Higher Education, v47 n9 pA53-54 Oct 27 2000
Analyzes implications of a $2-million judgment awarded to a female football player by a federal jury who found that Duke University (North Carolina) engaged in illegal discrimination by keeping her off its football team. Considers the tradition of football as a decidedly male activity, Title IX requirements, and the large degree of variance in physical abilities within each sex. (DB)
