Lisa Olson - Higher Standard
Johnette Howard for Newsday stated, "One of the powerful things that came out of Lisa Olson's case was that teams and leagues have said adamantly that they won't tolerate that kind of behavior … before that, I think women thought ritual hazing was part of the job they had to get through." Olson agrees, stating, "Things have changed dramatically since I was new on the Patriots' beat."
Nine years later Olson is back in the States reporting for the New York Daily News. In her column she relays that she has received disgusting hate mail since her return, but will not back down from the job she loves. Olson explains why women continue in the field of sports journalism saying, "we do it because we love writing and producing and filming and talking sports." Many people have tried to come up with solutions to this prominent problem as more and more women enter the field. "Reporters wish the athletes would keep their uniforms on long enough to be interviewed, and that would eliminate all problems," said Holli Armstrong for the University Wire. Olson has no problem doing her job in the professional manner in which she has always conducted herself.
