Upstream vs. downstream: Upstream is the prevention of a problem at higher level while downstream is action to help people cope with a problem after the fact These two complement each other to positively addressing gender issues Upstreams: Men’s care Downstream: Phone hotlines Gendered family rituals: Holiday traditions amplify and clearly assign gender roles that reflect historical practices. Gender essentialism remains an underlying concept. Women cook and clean up, men cut turkey and watch football although on a daily basis the family is an egalitarian one. Transnational motherhood: Notion that economic circumstances force Latina women to work in the US as domestic workers to supplement mothers of American families in order to support their own families at home.

Secret language of male coaches: Lack of context, engage with players: Messner’s idea that there are unspoken rules and knowledge that have been learned through other coaches However, women are discriminated against by not given them this insight. This has to do with male supremacy of the sport and Kate Kaplin who struggled to be a softball coach as she was not aware of more than the rules thus limiting his success.
