15871. Sport as a Social Space of Relative Freedom.
This paper addresses the claim that sports offer opportunities for people to move beyond rigid self-definitions, by examining gender issues in the sports word. Although an increasing number of women are becoming involved in sports, oppressive gender distinctions continue to exist. Yet, women's growing involvement in sports is also a step towards positive social change. 7 pages, 15 footnotes, 9 bibliographic sources.
