Why aren’t women riding for roses at the Kentucky Derby?

Cluster faculty member Kerry Keyes and colleagues just published a piece at CNN.com on gender discrimination in horse racing.

“No women will ride in Saturday’s Kentucky Derby. That isn’t unusual. Old race result charts (which are like box scores) show that since 1970, when Diane Crump became the first woman to start the Derby, only five other women have passed through the starting gate — alongside 301 men. Since 2004, only one woman, Rosie Napravnik, has started any Triple Crown race — and Napravnik retired three years ago.”

Keyes and colleagues unpack this issue, here, on CNN.com.
