Title

Article "To Be There: A Girl of Sport"

Description

This article addresses the struggle that female athletes face in maintaining their femininity in their sport. Barnum refers to a female student athlete who feels that there are more feminine female athletes than people believe, and that women often lose the feminine identity when they choose to be an athlete. Barnum addresses the double life that many Westhampton female athletes face, and that their hard work as student athletes often goes unrecognized by the university community, solely because they are women.
