Game Face: What Does a Female Athlete Look Like?

June 27, 2001 – January 2, 2002

Arts and Industries Building
900 Jefferson Drive, SW
Washington, DC

Location: East Hall

Photographs and text are used to trace the evolution of women's athleticism before and after Title IX, the June 23, 1972, law enacted to prevent sex discrimination in federally funded educational programs and activities. Images of women of various ages, races, and physical abilities, taken by documentary and fine arts photographers, are combined with testimonies by professional and nonprofessional athletes to convey the diversity of their activities and achievements.
