Lindsay & Obee discuss why men are treated more favorably because of their stature and gender regardless of performance or achievements and how women must own their status in sport and in life

The Dirty Double is hosted by Lindsay Jennerich & Patricia Obee

Podcast length: 21’53” 

On this month’s episode, multi-medalists rowers Lindsay Jennerich and Patricia Obee reflect on their experience as World Champions and Olympic silver medalists regarding inequity among athletes. They share their perspective of being on the Canadian rowing team for many years, how men were always first in line for coaching and even medical treatment, regardless of their performance and record. Why would a multi-medalist athlete be treated less favorably than an athlete who was unproven, regardless of gender? They also believe that the physical stature of men gave them an advantage over women, again regardless of performance. Their advice to women is to own their position in sport and life because power is taken, not given.
