Summary "This book examines the most prolific international womens football tournament--the FIFA Womens World Cup--through media, fandom and how mediated women's soccer can improve on a global scale. Women's soccer has exploded in terms of media exposure, television audiences and live spectatorship. This book explores those macro-level issues, while also digging into micro-level topics such as Megan Rapinoes celebrations and political activism, VAR reviews, LGBTQ imagery, and cultural obstacles for womens football in Central-Eastern Europe and Nigeria. Using an interdisciplinary approach, scholars look at issues through the lenses of feminist theory, cultural studies, rhetorical criticism, political economy, performative sport fandom, autoethnography, and more. Thus, the book is important reading for students, researchers and media practitioners with interests in womens soccer, gender in sports media, coverage of womens sport, and sport fandom."-- Provided by publisher
