As a female student-athlete, I’ve always seen double standards between men’s and women’s sports. In most cases, male athletes always seem to garner more attention and clout, while female athletes get pushed to the side. While this isn’t necessarily male athletes’ fault, I just wish that female athletes got more attention on a national scale.
As I write this on March 16th, I am in the middle of the second of my two favorite days of the year. I am talking, of course, about the two days on which the first round of the NCAA basketball tournament (March Madness) takes place. Over the course of these two days, 32 basketball games are played, and I need to watch every. single. one.
