This book frames the issue of sexual harassment and abuse in sports within the context of existing research on sexual violence and within the ethic of care, a direction the authors believe sport organizations should adopt. This book investigates sexual violence in sport and examines its underlying values. This is carried out in the context of contemporary experiences of a number of athletes. Issues covered include the emphasis on competition, compulsory heterosexuality, and patriotism.
