What Good Are (Women's) Sports?
"A study released earlier this year, examining the impact of Title IX, offers hard evidence that playing sports leads to greater educational and employment opportunities." The Boston Globe reports on the benefits of sports for women and for us all: "'There’s a lot of research indicating that women don’t like to compete as much as men, and they’re not as successful in the labor force because they’re not as willing to be competitive,' Betsy Stevenson, author of the study, said. But perhaps playing sports is helping to change that as well. 'Certainly anything we do repeatedly, we get used to,' she said. 'Kids—who grow up playing sports as part of everyday life—play games, either win or lose, and move on.'"
