Women sports and journalism: Case study of Indian women cricket


Author(s): Sandhya Chauhan and Aditya Kumar Shukla

Abstract: This research analyzes the work of various authors, published on some of the elite websites. It is done in an order to analyze the coverage given by media to the women sports in India, taking women cricket in the prime focus. The main aim here was to demonstrate that journalism is more about public interest than any other news value and media prioritizes profit and the talent and hard work of some sections of the society gets a back seat due to biological reasons. This has been shown by examining scenarios where women gave their sweat and time to the country and got nil telecasts of their matches in return. The aspects researched are the media strategies, power of a unified nation, skills and potential in the women cricket team and success as a craft of media. I assessed how with the aid of social media, Indian cricket team took a major leap towards success in 2017. This research provides valuable information in context to the hurdles and struggles faced by women sports, primarily women cricket in India with respect to the journalism being the friend and the foe.
