Influence of socio economic status on self confidence of women volleyball players
Author(s): Dr. Hoovanna Sakpal
Sport may be one area where the appearance of equality is more cosmetic than reality. Sport remains highly associated with the so-called “masculine” element of our culture, and the female in sport is still considered a woman in man’s territory. Thus, the female athlete is a special case in two senses. Because of her sport interests, she is considered a special kind of female; because she is female she is considered a special kind of athlete. Awareness of her exceptional status surely colours the female athlete’s approach to sport and makes her sport experience qualitatively different from that of the male athlete. The female athlete’s special status raises significant questions about the psychological dimensions of her sport involvement. While the western world has progressed in the area of equality, in most third world countries including India, it remains a long way off.
