What is changing for women in sport?

Mary Jo KaneMary Jo Kane, professor of sport sociology and director of the Tucker Center for Research on Girls & Women in Sport, talked about how sports are changing women's lives on Minnesota Public Radio's "Midmorning" show Nov. 3. The conversation took place following the Tucker Center's recent Girls & Women in Sport and Physical Activity Conference on campus.

Appearing with Kane was Rebecca Lobo—WNBA and women's college basketball analyst, reporter for ESPN, and former star basketball player for the University of Connecticut—and Don Sabo, from the Center for Research on Physical Activity, Sport & Health, D'Youville College in Buffalo, NY. Professor Sabo, considered one of the most important empirical researchers in the U.S. on girls and women in sport, delivered the conference's keynote address.
