The Gendering of Gyms, Fields and Courts (VIDEO)
This is a thoughtful video by Alex Melotti regarding the gendering of sports “spaces,” as they are called in this clip. The video is titled: “Sports, Space and Gender.”
At one point in the clip, the narrator muses:
“The spaces themselves aren’t gendered, but once there ‘s activity, once there’s competition, it seems that there’s no getting away from the idea that everything in those spaces–the sounds, the pace–it all gets defined as either male or female.”
What if it didn’t?
