I was tasked to choose a topic that I had interest in, keeping in mind that this topic would ideally evolve into my thesis project. So make sure I like it! I then examined, researched and studied the topic in close detail to become an “expert” in the topic. All of this research was also done to help me gain different ways in researching that I could keep under my belt for future use. I then gathered all of the information, statistics and imagery to design a book that supported everything I had found. In my case, a spin off of this topic indeed led to my thesis topic. So, good thing I like sports, huh?
I explored the idea of women in sports and how they have an uneven playing field, meaning they are not treated as equals to their male counterparts. They get less opportunity and when they do get the opportunity, they get less pay and are treated differently in the media and on social media among many other things. I researched why this is and if there is a trend for this becoming a thing of the past.
