Example text

For example, women who were teaching physical education or planning organized recreation programs for girls and women declared that the problem with physical activities for women was that they should not follow the male model. For girls and women, it was felt that the emphasis should be on the joy of playing rather than on winning championships. Unlike the men’s programs, these women did not want to neglect the “many” in order to train the elite. They did not want sport and recreation activities professionalized.

In general, the norm for working women was similar to women working within the home in that their leisure experiences were scarce and often tied to their socio-economic class. Regardless of whether women worked for pay because of choice or necessity, or whether they worked without pay in the home, leisure as defined by the patriarchy was not seen as the right of most women. Thus, women sought ways to create social change and legitimize their free time. The Interaction of Women’s Leisure and Social Reform Movements All over the world, the emergence of social movements, such as the woman’s rights movement, was dependent on a class of educated women with free time and leisure (Lerner, 1979).

Women have always had their own recreation and leisure ways, although they have not always been perceived as such by others. The leisure experiences of women have been unstructured, self-initiated, and generally connected with home and family duties. Women’s leisure experience was incorporated into their daily tasks or was viewed as an extension of their mandated sex roles. As homemakers and mothers, women often had fewer opportunities for social cooperation and team work. Thus, they differed in interests and tastes from men who always experienced competition and cooperative activities in the hunt, in tribal life, in war, and in the industrialized system (Bowers, 1934).
