Reproductive Rights and Athletics: The Curious Tale of Female Ski Jumpers
From 2002 - 2005 I made a film about female ski jumpers trying to get their sport included in the Winter Olympics. With the 2010 Vancouver Games right around the corner and the women still being excluded I wrote this piece for Contexts.org, an awesome sociology scholarly blog, about the fight of women ski jumpers to get their sport included in the Winter Olympics. It is a strange tale of sports and reproduction. Yeah, I know. I would have never put those two together before my journey as well!
