Is Olympics Coverage Undermining Women's Achievements?

 

 

Female athletes have been participating in the Olympics for 116 years and for the second Olympics games in a row, the USA is sending more women than men. Yet, in 2016, the media still doesn't report on their achievements to the degree they deserve. The amount of sexist fails we've seen from media coverage in Rio hasn't exactly been subtle. 

Women have been outstanding in the Olympics this year. They broke numerous world records and have shown outstanding effort and unparalleled excellence. American trap shooter and third time Olympian Corey Cogdell-Unrein won bronze. Her amazing achievement clearly didn't merit any recognition on its own, because The Chicago Tribune referenced her as the wife of her famous husband.
