  • Posted LaVoi's Sociological Perspective on <i>Warrior Girls</i> to Reacting to Warrior Girls...

    by Nicole M. LaVoi, Ph.D. — Associate Director, Tucker Center

    Let me begin by stating that sport injuries and sport injury prevention are very real and im-portant issues—for both girls and boys. However, framing the issue of sport injuries as an inevita-ble biological difference based on the sex of the athlete is sensationalistic and irresponsible...
  • Posted Stovitz's and Arendt's Sport Medicine Perspective on <i>Warrior Girls</i> to Reacting to Warrior Girls...

    by Steven D. Stovitz, MD, FACSM — Assistant Professor, Department of Family Medicine and Community Health & Elizabeth A. Arendt, MD, FACSM — Professor, Department of Orthopedic Surgery

    As sports medicine providers, we are aware of the devastation that an ACL tear can have on both the musculoskeletal system and the mental health of an adolescent. In certain sports, females sustain a higher rate (not a greater number) of non-contact ACL injuries when compared with males. However, the emphasis on the emotional interplay among the athletes, parents, and coaches Sokolove writes about detracts the focus from a more scientific presentation of injury risk...
  • Posted Nelson's Public Health Perspective on <i>Warrior Girls</i> to Reacting to Warrior Girls...

The author is sensitive to the hard-won gains that have opened doors for young women to experience the benefits of sport. We cannot go back. Higher sport injury rates among girls is not evidence of weakness nor an indication they should not play...
  • Posted Wiese-Bjornstal's Sport Psychology Perspective: True Confessions of a Warrior Girl to Reacting to Warrior Girls...

    Diane Wiese-Bjornstal, Ph.D. — Associate Professor, School of Kinesiology; Association of Applied Sport Psychology Certified Consultant

    In many ways I was a “warrior girl?; still am, I think. So I truly do understand what these girls feel: The over-powering desire to mask pain, injury, or fatigue so as not to miss a moment of playing time, give less than 100%, or appear weak. But fortunately for me, this style wasn’t an option at the tender age of 10 or younger as it is for girls—and boys—today, so I survived relatively unscathed at least until college...
  • Posted Concluding Thoughts to Reacting to Warrior Girls...
    Warrior Girls is based on sensationalistic journalism rather than empirical evidence. Sokolove skillfully links the sport ethic—striving for distinction, accepting risks, playing through pain, and not accepting barriers in the pursuit of goals—with a Mars-Venus dichotomy whereby females are routinely...
