Acclaimed since its original publication, Coming on Strong has become a much-cited touchstone in scholarship on women and sports. In this new edition, Susan K. Cahn updates her detailed history of women's sport and the struggles over gender, sexuality, race, class, and policy that have often defined it. A new chapter explores the impact of Title IX and how the opportunities and interest in sports it helped create reshaped women's lives even as the legislation itself came under sustained attack.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Coming on Strong has long been the go-to book for the history of women in sport. Now it moves boldly into the twenty-first century. Assessing the enormous changes that have reshaped the sports landscape since the 1970s, it reminds us that the playing field is still far from level and challenges us to make the ongoing quest for gender equity in sport part of the larger struggle for social change."
--Susan Ware, author of Game, Set, Match: Billie Jean King and the Revolution in Women's Sports

"Coming on Strong is no less relevant today than when it was in the first edition in 1994, and those who previously missed Cahn should definitely take the opportunity to read her now."--Nordic Sport Science Forum
