Yearbook of Women's History/Jaarboek voor vrouwengeschiedenis 38.


Women are on the move. Traditionally, sport has been a masculine domain, dominated by men and capacities that have culturally been ascribed to men. But this is changing as women's participation in sport continues to increase throughout the world, their successes are widely celebrated and 'fitgirls' have become part of popular culture. The 2018 Yearbook of Women's History shows muscle: its focus is on sport and sporting bodies: their transgressing practices, representations and impacts on femininities, masculinities and ethnicities. Fourteen contributions by different authors elaborate on the processes that have underpinned these enormous and in many ways gendered changes. What was the role of female pioneers and their supporters? How have issues of gender changed sport and vice versa? And, finally, what transnational and intersectional dynamics of sports have played a role in these transformations?
