Tucker Center affiliated scholar Cheryl Cooky, Ph.D. (Purdue), and colleagues have published the latest iteration of a 30-year, longitudinal study on the coverage of men’s and women’s sports. “One and Done: The Long Eclipse of Women’s Televised Sports, 1989–2019,” reveals that there has been “little change in the quantitative apportionment of coverage of women’s and men’s sports” with men receiving the vast share of stories in television, print, and social media.
