dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to examine the media coverage of the United States Women’s World Cup team and how they were portrayed during the tournament in USA Today. Many female athletes and their achievements are marginalized in the mainstream sports media. Through a content analysis of articles from each of the past four World Cup tournaments, the researcher found that as opposed to a focus on beauty or the femininity of the athletes, the players were given overwhelming recognition for their athletic performance and accomplishments in the game of soccer.
