Sports Equality Are sports at LEigh high school equal?

Boys and Girls Sports are said to be equal here at Leigh High School (LHS), but are they really? Let us have a look at the Sports and the equality and inequality for females and males.

Bellow this text box is a photo of a poster that is hanging in our school gym. Some people may argue that this photo is unequal and that boys sports are more privileged because a male playing a sport is the largest photo, but if you count girls sports are featured onto here 6 times while boys are featured 5.

Nella K. is a student apart of the Journalism Class which is in charge of the paper. In an interview held with her about how 2/3 pages of the Sports section were on males she responded "Well it's not all of Journalism that decides what goes on what, it's the people that work for our Sports section that does."
