Feminist scholars have long been at the forefront of advancing the study of sport to address the intersections of gender, race, class, sexuality and ability in framing sporting encounters and experiences (Douglas, 2005; Hargreaves, 2000; King & McDonald, 1997; Scraton, 2001). The field, however, is largely dominated by research that details the gender operations of sport across North America, Europe and the United Kingdom (what is often referred to as "the Global North") leaving women’s everyday encounters with sport as players, audiences, workers and media subjects across "the Global South" open to further investigation.
