Harvard Magazine quotes Tucker Center’s LaVoi

Nicole M. LaVoi

Harvard Magazine has quoted Nicole M. LaVoi, Ph.D., senior lecturer and director of the School of Kinesiology’s Tucker Center, in an article on Harvard women’s basketball head coach Kathy Delaney-Smith. The article, “An Authentic Act,” speaks to Delany-Smith’s 37-year career as a coach who has helped her players navigate many off-court challenges. LaVoi comments on one of these challenges, the pervasive sexualization of athlete bodies, noting that while male players can also be sexualized in the media, female athletes experience it much moreso.
