Women in Sport is a digital home for items and collections related to the history of girls' and women in sport from the Iowa Women's Archives. The Omeka-powered website is an effort by faculty and students in the Department of American Studies at the University of Iowa to digitize, interpret, and make available the sporting stories of Iowan girls and women. In particular, content for Women in Sport is generated by sport studies faculty in the Department of American Studies and students in SPST 2078 Women, Sport, and Culture.
The Women in Sport website is an ongoing work-in-progress. New items, collections, and exhibits are added as new artifacts and histories from the Iowa Women's Archives are explored. Please revisit the site for updates and new content on girls' and women sport in Iowa.
