book
posted on 2017-01-01, 00:00 authored by Kim ToffolettiKim Toffoletti
Women worldwide are making their presence felt as sport fans in rapidly increasing numbers. This book makes a distinctive contribution to the study of sport fandom by exploring the growing visibility and interest in women who follow sport. It presents the latest data on women’s sport spectatorship in different regions of the world, posing new theoretical paradigms to study the globalised nature of female sport fandom. By using a critical feminist perspective to investigate cultural conditions and social contexts (globalisation, digital networked technologies, consumerism, neoliberalism and postfeminism), it brings into view a diversity of women’s voices and experiences as sport fans.
