Presentation Abstract

My paper discusses the inequalities between collegiate men's and women's athletics. I take my experience as a member of the Coastal Carolina University Chanticleer Girls Dance Team and compare that to the experiences of the athletes on the football team and other men's sports. I also use examples from different colleges and sports to support the idea of disparities in college athletics. In addition, I discuss Title IX and its' failed efforts to mend the disparities in funding and facilities, leadership positions, sports coverage, and respect as a whole.
