In this article, the writer looks at Canadian sports from 1915-1945. The correlating theme of this paper is how gender has played a role in the forming of these sports both progressively and retrospectively. The writer looks at the sociology of gender in society and how a feminism view on sports should be taken. The writer also delves into how Canadian sports have limited their female players, their abilities and their powers based on premeditated concepts of women being the weaker sex. The writer concludes that such prehistoric thoughts only show how ignorant a society's traditions and mores prove to be, and Canada is no different. In accordance to sports alone, women are not nearly the magnitude at which they should be in the sport vocations.
From the Paper:" Adolescence is a period of socialization where children develop relationships outside of the family. These relationships further fuel or enhance their perceptions of the world, their bonding with surrounding society members and their view of human interactions. In an environment where there is a distant mother or absent father, where the child is found to have problems acting socially normal with other people, the person is defined as a deviant. It becomes apparent then, that early childhood development is essential to creating an identity and furthermore to creating the mores and values of a society which translates into the sporting in Canada being genderized."
