Summary
"Mother's Taxi is a detailed study of how women facilitate and service the sport played by others, particularly their immediate family members. It illustrates how domestic labor and childcare done by women provides the space for others to participate in sport, contributing directly to individual sporting careers and generally servicing sport as an institution. It offers important considerations for studies of sport, leisure, and gender relations by highlighting an aspect of women's relationships to sport which has been largely ignored."--Jacket
