A Women's Sports Foundation Research Report

Increasing women's participation in the Olympic Movement as participants and leaders has been a slow and challenging process. While the number of "events" open to female athletes has increased steadily during the past 30 years, the actual number of female Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games participants and the number of opportunities to medal within those events has yet to equal the number of male participants or medals. This report, prepared by the US-based Women's Sports Foundation provides an analysis of participation, leadership and media coverage from the 2006 Games.

This report was authored by Lisa Zurn, Ph.D., Collaborative Initiatives; Donna A. Lopiano, Ph.D., Women's Sports Foundation; and Marjorie A. Snyder, Ph.D., Women's Sports Foundation, with the assistance of Terri Lakowski, Julie Foudy, Carole A. Oglesby, Ph.D., and Don Sabo, Ph.D.

The complete report can be found Here.
