histories, equity and experiences
Magee, J., Caudwell, J., Liston, K., & Scraton, S. (2007). Women, football and Europe: histories, equity and experiences. Oxford: Meyer & Meyer Sport (UK) Ltd..
It is undeniable that association football is a global game with huge popularity. Yet what is known as 'women's football' receives far less support, financial assistance, media coverage and academic attention than 'men's football'. Consequently the story of women's football remains largely untold and its potential as an academic topic is yet to be fulfilled. This collection of essays contributes new knowledge on women's football, with the first section detailing historical aspects, the second equality issues and the third focusing on experiences. The book is aimed primarily at social scientists but will appeal to anyone with an interest in women's football.
