The Playing Field is a new HuffPost blog covering women and sports.
The days when sports were a man's world are gone, and here at HuffPost we're excited to cover women's ever-expanding playing field by giving these athletes a prominent space in sports media. We'll be covering all aspects of gender and athletics: Olympic and professional-level competition, emerging and unusual sports, media coverage of female athletes and the business side of the industry, including sponsorship, marketing and pay.
For readers, whether you are engaging in the continued fight to level the playing field, looking to follow the games and the athletes, or simply itching to share stories of your own playing time, we'd love to hear your voices.
Follow us on twitter at HP_playingfield and reach out at Laura.Gottesdiener@huffingtonpost.com with story ideas or blog pitches.
