Misconception Of Women's Sports

Good Essays
So I feel women’s sports aren 't as popular as men’s sports because of the misconception of women in America, Lack of Media coverage, and sponsors are unwilling to finance individuals and teams that don’t get good exposure. In a way it’s kind of like a vicious cycle, in the since that all these reasons are linked together. Though I feel if we found a good balance between media coverage and sponsorship 's then this problem would be drastically reduced, however as I stated earlier the misconception of woman in America is still somewhat of a problem.

In the end all these topics are linked up to one another and, you cannot solve one issue without solving the previous issue.
