TO THE EDITOR:
I’m writing because The Daily Tar Heel’s sexist sports coverage has gone far enough.
The UNC women’s basketball team won by one point in the final seconds of a great game against Georgia Tech, and the DTH put a quarter-page article on the back page … underneath a half-page fluff piece about a shortstop on the men’s baseball team and just above a quarter-page analysis of the next day’s men’s basketball game.
Speaking of the men’s basketball team, imagine for a second that it was the men’s basketball team with a narrow victory and a star player like Jamie Cherry: The front page of the DTH would have a half-page article at the least.
This is what readers have to put up with on a supposedly progressive campus 45 years after the passage of Title IX.
