Description - Balancing Acts: Women in Sport: Essays on power, performance, bodies & love by Justin Wolfers

Focusing on a critically underrepresented part of Australian culture (the many ways non-male participants in sport negotiate the traditionally male spectacle of athleticism) this accessible and inclusive collection investigates the way sporting bodies and achievements are portrayed in Australian media and daily life.

The book understands the term 'sport' in the widest possible sense, and applies the definition of 'women' in the same broad way to include trans, gender diverse, non-binary, intersex, and otherwise non-cis women. Several essays are also written from and/or about queer, gay, and bisexual women.

Essays examine the way women athletes' experience are marginalised and under-reported, and attempt to de-centre the status quo of sports writing and commentary as currently dominated by male perspectives and expertise.
