been able to participate in more sports than they ever could, but they still face discrimination when it comes to not only the way they’re viewed and treated, but also the support and resources they’re given. Boys sports and girls’ sports have huge disparities and that can be evident just looking at the amount of resources that many institutions pour into their football teams as compared to sports that are more typically played by girls and women.

For example, the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) works frequently on cases where the facilities for girls’ sports are woefully inadequate as compared to the boys in the same sports, like a soccer field where the boys have a beautiful new stadium with beautiful new turf and the girls are playing on a field with broken glass and bare dirt and no those are not exaggerations, those are real examples of cases still being worked on by the ALCU. Women in sports are still underpaid and undervalued, essentially treated as second class citizens compared to their male counterparts. Another example is March men’s and women’s cricket teams from across the world flew to India for the men’s and women’s Twenty20 World Cup. That seems great, but the council funded all the men’s teams to fly business class, but only paid for the women's teams to fly in a cramped economy.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
