This is what exclusion looks like

All culture is by default men’s culture. Sport is a good example:

There was a series of cycle races yesterday, including a women’s one

The BBC had a few sentences about the women at the end of a report and pictures on the men’s race, amongst pages of reports and pictures on other male cyling events, amongst more pages of “Sport” ie men’s sport.

Current headlines are two men, one a known abuser, along with their promoters earning millions for themselves. (link in comments)

The Telegraph (which has a repuation for good sports coverage) has nothing on women’s events.

The Guardian has a sports page with 59 men’s stories and 1 female athlete (Jessica Ennis) along with one piece referring to a wife and another with a picture of a female spectator.

We are half the human race, and yet that is our representation.
