Deutschlandfunk 9th Sports Conference – Get out of the offside trap!

The 9th Sports Conference on Deutschlandfunk is about women in sports information. (DLF Sport)

“Do you even have permission to be away from the kitchen?” ZDF soccer reporter Claudia Neumann hears or reads those slogans over and over again. Ever since she was used as a live commentator at the European Football Championship in 2016, she has been dealing with degradation, insolence, and even hatred.

The reason: he dared to enter a male domain. And this is also a great success. Sport, as perhaps the most popular leisure time activity for Germans, reflects gender relations and not just in reports.

Reduced to external

Outside of the Olympics and Paralympics, not only do female athletes appear in the media much less frequently than female athletes, but they are often reduced to superficialities, even undisguised sexisms, even.

A male dominance that has consequences, especially with boys: significantly more boys than girls are physically active. Boys are much more likely to choose female athletes as role models than girls are to female athletes.

Would more women in sports journalism ensure more balanced coverage and attract more women overall? Or do you have to go through the processes established in the newsrooms to be able to get ahead professionally? Y: What has happened since the well-known soccer reporters Sabine Töpperwien and Claudia Neumann started?

We will discuss this with sports journalists and athletes at the sports conference in Deutschlandfunk on November 18, 2021 starting at 6 pm The face-to-face event is complete. The event can be followed on the live broadcast. The link for the broadcast will be posted on this page well in advance.
