Critical analysis on Gender Discrimination in Athletics Introduction Typically, sports are used as a relevant tool for promoting health, education, individual development and intercultural dialogue among others regardless of individuals, age, ability, political affiliation, race, Gender social-economic background and sexual orientation. It is not until gender discrimination in athletics begun to be exhibited in the way participants are allowed to participate in their respective areas as in case Oncale v. Sundowner Offshore Services, Inc. . Since the inception of modern Olympics by Baron Pierre de Coubertin in 1896, woman organism has not been cut out to sustain specific shocks as a sportswoman. Gender equality has come a long way such as UNESCO, which has included sports as a Human Right in 1978 1 . Even though there is an obstacle in gender discrimination around athletics as in case Cleburne v. Cleburne Living Center, Inc. , 473 U.S , there are several women who have led and others already leading the way to equality. This paper look examines how gender discrimination in athletics has paved the way for the inception of Human rights and the Equality Act 2010 to seek redress against the action as in case General Elec. Co. v. Gilbert . The paper also evaluates the strategies that may be used to change gender discrimination so that when parents are even taking their children in schools and colleges, they can have more equal chances to participate in whatever they want as in case Roberts v. Colorado State Bd. of Agriculture , 998 F.2d 824 (10th Cir. 1993) . Typically, the participation of women in athletics has similar benefits as men, especially in developing skills such as leadership skills, grades, and promoting their health and fitness, boosting their self-esteem. 1 Nogueira, A., Molinero, O., Salguero, A., Lucidi, F. and Márquez, S., 2018.

Sports have been one of the world's most-liked and participated in art. Gender discrimination has faced a lot of concerns in the field of law with human rights and equality acts in existence as in case Mississippi Univ. for Women v. Hogan . There have been pay-gap issues in sports where female athletes do not receive equal pay compared to their male counterparts. Gender is defined as what culture or society characteristics one exhibit that describes him/her to a particular gender as in case Cohen v. Brown University , 991 F.2d 888 (1st Cir. 1993) . Technically speaking, the word gender is being misused because a person’s gender is what the other person owns her/his identity, which is consistent with what society and stereotypes consider to be acceptable 2 . With this in mind, it is worth saying that gender discrimination against women is experienced in sports in many forms even in management.
