Loving a Sport That Doesn't Love You Back: Baseball's Tumultuous Relationship With Women Fans

The sport of baseball has a complicated history with the women in their stands. From fighting for their right just to be spectators to being pandered to with offensive and sexist promotions or forgotten altogether, baseball hasn't always done right by the women who love the sport. This lecture will trace the path of the female fan from the turn of the 20th century, when baseball was professionalized, to the current day, when the league is trying to do better but still comes up short. Women in the stands have a rich history and have been a major part of baseball's story, even if they're often left out of the telling.
