Future Girl
by Anita Harris

Anita Harris creates a realistic portrait of the “new girl” that has appeared in the twenty-first century–she may still play with Barbie, but she is also likely to play soccer or basketball, be assertive and may even be sexually aware, if not active. Building on this new definition, Harris explores the many key areas central to the lives of girls from a global perspective, such as girlspace, schools, work, aggression, sexuality and power.

The Girl and the Game
by Margaret Ann Hall

The Girl and the Game traces the history of women’s organized sport in Canada from its early, informal roots in the late nineteenth century through the formation of amateur and professional teams to today’s tendency to market women athletes, especially Olympians, as both athletic and sexual. When women actively participate in the symbols, practices, and institutions of sport, what they do is often not considered "real" sport, nor in some cases are they viewed as "real" women. What follows from this notion of sport as a site of cultural struggle is that the history of women in sport is also a history of cultural resistance.
