RE: Women in locker rooms
You can tell that this is going to increase. In the past 6 months I have read countless articles on fighting sexism and inequality for female reporters in sports. There is also a push to hire more women as announcers. Can you imagine a women announcing NFL or NHL games? In the NBA, they already have Doris Burke who does colour commentary on some games and it drives me insane. I always have to watch the game on mute when she's on. I read an article about a month ago in SI about the need for the first woman broadcaster in NFL. The article even opined that NFL viewership was sexist and it would be hard to get men to listen to a woman announcer.

And once again, the worst part is that the men in power in these industries: the commissioners, the media company executives (ESPN, TNT, FOX), and the male journalists are the ones that are pushing for these changes.

Why can't women just stick to reporting women's sports?
