Abstract:The papers in this volume were first presented at a symposium on Gender, Sport and Development held in Cairo in November 2009. They contribute to an understanding of how the discursive and structural elements of sport in Africa are overlaid with gender inequities. Contributions: The most beautiful game or the most gender violent sport? Exploring the interface between soccer, gender and violence in Zimbabwe (Anusa Daimon); From 'safety' zones to public spaces: women's participation in sport in Zimbabwe (Molly Manyonganise); 2010 FIFA World Cup and the patriarchy of football spectatorship in Malawi (Jessie Kabwila Kapasula); Media, sport and male dominance: analysis of sport presentations in a Nigerian newspaper (Aretha Oluwakemi Asakitikpi); Football, empowerment and gender equality: an exploration of elite-level women's football in South Africa (Mari Haugaa Engh); Thiery Henry as 'Igwe': soccer fandom, christening and cultural passage in Nollywood (Senayon Olaoluwa and Adewole Adejayan); The gendered dimension of competitive sports in a multicultural context: the Mauritian scenario (Ramola Ramtohul); Challenging gender stereotypes: a case study of three South African soccer players (Sharon Groenmeyer); The corporatization of women's football in South Africa: a case study of the Sasol sponsorship and its transformative potential (Lucy Mills); Football for Hope Centres in Africa: intentions, assumptions and gendered implications (Jimoh Shehu).
