Episode 18: Playing Gender

For this inclusive episode of Grandstand the Professor and the Pontificator are joined by multi-sport all-stars Viviana and Favi to talk about the biggest non-mainstream sport of all; all women sports. Is the physical difference between the sexes really that significant? Is it the major factor affecting the quality of play on the field? Or is the supposed gap in the quality of game play between men and women only a temporary reflection especially when considering how long it took for women to have access to elite level competition with their peers? Is there a future reality where men and women compete alongside each other on same field, divided only by weight classes? Or will sports always be divided along gender lines, and if so what role will grandstanders play in a fostering the growth of the spectating spectacle of women sports?
