Sample text

Dramatic differences prevailed in the philosophy and goals of some of the initial women’s organizations. Basically two divisions emerged from the early organizing years: a suffrage focus and a feminist focus. The single-issue suffrage groups were primarily concerned with getting the right to vote extended to women. The feminist group was broader in its goals and approaches. This group was concerned with women being allowed to vote, but voting was only A Historical Perspective 33 one of many critical issues that feminists believed all women faced.

Through such activities, women gained autonomy, yet generally were not perceived as being deviant from prescribed sex-roles. The establishment and growth of Women’s Clubs was a large movement in the United States. An example of this type of organization that was operated within women’s free time and often for leisure and recreational reasons was the black women’s clubs.

Considerable criticism of female sporting activities may have been because women’s sport participation represented a threat to traditional gender roles and to the patriarchy in general. Sporting ability was hardly compatible with women’s traditional subordinate role; in fact, sport had the potential to equalize relations between the sexes. By minimizing socially constructed sex differences that had only tenuous biological bases, sport posed a serious threat to the myth of female frailty (Lenskyj, 1986).
