Nicole M. LaVoi, PhD, Tucker Center director and senior lecturer in the School of Kinesiology, has posted an article with Global Sports Matters, “Women Coaches Face Greater Professional and Personal Obstacles Than Men.” Noting that the proportion of women coaches in sport has decreased since implementation of Title IX, LaVoi asserts that while the reasons are complex, research shows that bias against intersectional identities like motherhood and sexuality remains a barrier.
