Abstract

This paper considers the location of women as fans and followers of sport and the consequences of this for the teaching of Physical Education (PE). It argues that even though many women continue to be marginalised within sport fan communities, their increasing presence within these and interest in sport (both male and female participation) as fans and spectators may offer important implications for the teaching of PE.
