I have been focused on the news story about the female reporter treatment in the locker room and on the sidelines. The fact that she was dressed “provocatively” is front and center. I have noticed that radio personalities, sports writers, etc. comment more about the woman’s outfit and not the behavior of the players.
Not surprising. I am curious what everyone thinks about how a woman’s clothes impacts the way she is treated. If she is not covered enough does it mean she wants to get disrespected?
What are your thoughts on female reporters in sports? Do you think they belong in the locker rooms to interview players?
I have regretted wearing a particular outfit because I ended up getting male attention that made me uncomfortable. The thing is, when dressed conservatively, I have still received more of the same attention that made me uncomfortable. Should women have to cover up to get respect?
