An ESPN profile of Jody Runge, a once-successful coach who couldn’t get a second chance.

The April 2, 2012 ESPNw’s article about the “glass wall” that shuts women out of coaching. “That men can coach women while women are shut out of the men’s game is a phenomenon researchers call “The Glass Wall.” Lots of statistics and resources, and a major source for the Washington Post opinion column I wrote about on August 1.

And in national news, a broader issue about pay equity:

The NY Times reports that Senate Republicans blocked the Pay Equity Act in June; find out what’s happening now with pay equity issues at the heart of Greenweld’s essay. (Women still make “77 cents to the male dollar” according to statistics reported in the article!)

Any other resources we need to read? Let me know.
