Gender Equity in Two-Year Athletic Departments: Part I
Staurowsky, Ellen J.
New Directions for Community Colleges, n147 p53-62 Fall 2009
Despite the role that female athletes at the community college level played, it is interesting to note that there is little in the way of a comprehensive history of women's college sports at two-year institutions. To situate the current state of gender equity in athletic programs in two-year institutions in context, this article presents a brief historical overview of women in two-year athletic program leadership and then discusses how two-year athletic associations and commissions have defined gender equity, essential understandings of Title IX as applied to athletic programs, and the research that has been done on issues related to gender equity in athletic departments in two-year institutions.
