Special Issue on Women and Sports
    WSQ seeks submissions on the topic of women and sports. Essays are
invited on all related topics, including those that focus on the
participation of sports in the cultural processes of gender
construction; connections between sport and social class, educational
opportunity, and economic markets; the role of sports institutions in
manufacturing and enforcing sexual stereotypes; depictions of race,
ethnicity, and national origin in women's sports; sports and the
beauty system, women's health and well being; a woman's right to her
anatomy and physical strength; social, friendship, and leadership
networks; and women's use of space (freedom of movement, fields of
play, institutional access). Reflecting the connection between sports
and academic institutions, essays that explore the history of feminism
(and/or women's studies) and the development of women's athletic
programs are also welcome, as is work related to curriculum and
pedagogy, such as relevant syllabi, interviews with activists/athletes,
historical documents, and reviews. Creative nonfiction, poetry, and
short fiction will be considered. Please sent a disk and three hard
