Rachel Allison publishes her first book, Kicking Center: Gender and the Selling of Women’s Professional Soccer

In Kicking Center, Rachel Allison (UIC alum and Assistant Professor of Sociology at Mississippi State University) examines a women's soccer league seeking to break into the male-dominated center of U.S. professional sport. Professor Allison demonstrates how gender inequality is both constructed and contested in professional sport. Congratulations, Professor Allison!
