The mass media have powerful forces in society. The media gives us important information to help us to understanding social status, social values. Our understanding of female athletes is influenced by the media. I will Exam the coverage of female athletes. I do some research on history of Women in Sports and pay Inequity in Athletics, and use pie chart to organize the data that I find online. I also create an online survey. In addition, I will collect local newspaper to see whether they have equitable coverage of female and male athletes.
