Abstract

The society has changed, now it argues towards equality among men and women but when it comes to equality in sports silence prevails. Women’s sports are less broadcasted than male sports events by the media. Women face various constraints in sports in comparison to men. To name some, meager payment, lack of female coaches, biasness in awards, lack of family support. It’s high time that they should be given equal opportunity in this arena. This paper highlights the challenges and possible measures which can be implemented for better participation of women in sports.
