Sports & Culture

Why do we hold sports to a different social standard?

The world of sports is often a host for toxic masculinity—a catalyst to other social issues like gender-based violence, racism and classism. So why do we pay attention to these issues everywhere else—workplaces, the internet, etc.—but not in the sports world?

Sports & Culture calls out the inequities and inequalities that are faced by athletes—particularly student athletes—but also the amazing things we learn from sports culture.
