Men play more sports than women; implications for Title IX
Caroline MacGregor December 5, 2012 | WGVU
Men are by
nature more motivated to compete in sports than women. That’s the conclusion of
a study that challenges conventional thinking that indicates the sex difference
in sports interest is disappearing and whether it may be a mistake to assume
women and men are equally driven when it comes to funding sports programs.
Professor Robert Deaner studied at Duke University and is currently an
associate professor with GVSU where he specializes in
evolutionary psychology, animal behavior, and neurobiology.
WGVU’s Caroline MacGregor talks with Professor Deaner about
the implications of his study.
