The purpose of this study is to determine if female and male collegiate athletes are depicted equally on their university's athletic websites. Nine University athletic websites were analyzed, comparing the amount and type of articles and pictures between male and female athletes. The results suggest that male and female athletes are represented equally on collegiate athletic websites, with females tending to be overrepresented.
