CONFERENCE: Girls & Women in Sport & Physical Activity: Creating Change

The Tucker Center for Research on Girls & Women in Sport at the University of Minnesota is hosting an exciting conference Wednesday, November 2, 2011 in Minneapolis, MN, preceding the annual meeting of the North American Society of Sport Sociology.

"Girls & Women in Sport & Physical Activity: Creating Change"

This one day interactive, translational, collaborative, multidisciplinary conference will bring together scholars, practitioners, community members, movers & shakers, leaders, and advocates. In the nearly 40 years since Title IX was enacted, significant changes and positive outcomes for girls and women in physical activity contexts are evidenced, yet disparities and inequalities exist in many key areas including for example, gendered participation gaps and media coverage. The focus of this conference is on the future and how collaborative action can help generate action and change.How can we use what we know to make a difference and create change?

The Call For Papers (CFP), registration, and more information about the conference can be accessed and downloaded onour website.

The deadline for abstract submission is July 15, 2011.
