"In this new edition of her groundbreaking social history The Girl and the Game (2002), M. Ann Hall updates her lively narrative of how masculine hegemony in Canadian sport was resisted by women and, in turn, how their efforts were opposed and sometimes supported by men. The Girl and the Game, Second Edition begins with an important new chapter on Aboriginal women and their interaction with early sport and ends with a new chapter on how trends and issues in today's Canadian women sport have their origins in the past. Other new sections include Gender and the Residential School System, Promoting Women's Track and Field, the 1928 Summer Olympics and the Matchless Six, and Aboriginal Sportswomen: Proudly Native. As in the first edition, Hall introduces her audience to more obscure Canadian female athletes rather than focusing her discussion on household names."--Provided by publisher.
