Tess Howard's dissertation research on the impacts of gendered sports clothing published in the journal Sport, Education, and Society and featured in The Guardian.

Congratulations to Durham Geography graduate Tess Howard, whose dissertation research was published in the journal Sport, Education, and Society.

The article is available to read here, and was covered by The Guardian in an article that discusses the key findings that "70% of women saw girls drop out of sport when they were at school due to clothing and related body image concerns, with many left feeling “sexualised” by what they were forced to wear."

You can read the full Guardian article here, and find other publications by Durham undergraduates here.
