Sports law as a discipline is in its infacy in India and while gender issues in sports have received some attention, perhaps no book has been writen exclusively on this subject in the Indian context, suggesting legal reforms to address the same. Three students of a premier law college in India make this scholastic effort underlining crucial concerns associated with this field of study and suggesting changes in the present draft of the National Sports Bill, which is expected to be tabled in the not-so-distant monsoon session of the Indian Parliament. In order to understand this issue in context, a comparitive approach looking at the American legislative framework has been adopted. The position of international law on the point has also been examined at considerable length. The authors have not only looked at the issue solely from the legal perspective but also examined the sociological undercurrents underlying the same and suggested a policy framework that can help achieve gender equality in this sphere, which, as the authors argue, also serves as an effective medium of women empowerment in general. Both doctrinal and non-doctrinal research have been carried out by the authors.
