Women have participated in sports throughout history, but only in recent years has this participation become widespread and attained recognition equal to that of men.

Everest; women who have run the Boston Marathon; how the 19th Amendment has affected womens sports; female shotputters; and how steroids affect womens muscles. Features include an introduction, cross-references, bibliography, and index.
