In the history of South Africa, sportswomen played a major role in the resistance movement in the struggle to liberate the country from apartheid, especially during the 1980''s and 1990''s. South African sportswomen used sport as site of resistance against racism and sexism until unity talks in South African sport took place between 1988 and 1994. These talks led to the synchronization of all South African sport codes across the racial divides, apparent in this country at that time. Against this backdrop, the status of women in sport in South Africa changed dramatically and has continued to do so as women have become more visible, despite their limited access to sport, especially at leadership level. The advancement of women into top management positions is steadily increasing. However, it seems as if gender divisions in the workforce do not encourage equal opportunities for women in the labor sector. In the world of sport, gender equity has been promoted with some progress. This monograph will attempt to highlight female sport administrators'' experiences of gender bias in their places of work.
