Other ESLA Events:
1. The Policing of Sex and Gender in Professional Sport
The division of athletes along gender lines often goes unquestioned. But what are we losing in keeping things this way? What does it mean to police those with supposedly ambiguous gender identities?
Come and hear our experienced panelists explore the policing of gender in the Olympics and in professional sports in general. They will explore the history, prevalence and problems with policing gender, as well as the possibilities for a more inclusive environment for athletes who don’t fit traditional gender binaries.
