More and more women and girls are discovering the joy and relishing the fierce competition of team sports. Their increasing participation in sports is influencing all aspects of women's-and men's-lives. Playing Like a Girl explores the ramifications of this sports revolution, such as the change in male-female relationships, the impact on women in the workplace, the long-term effects of Title IX, and the phenomenon of men coaching women. These ideas are explored through stories of women from grandmothers playing basketball in the Senior Olympics, to working women who get up before dawn to row on the Potomac River.
