The Evian Resort Golf Club sits among the foothills of the French Alps overlooking picturesque Lake Geneva. The city is best known, however, as host of the annual Evian Championship — one of five majors on the Ladies Professional Golf Association’s (LPGA) tournament circuit.

As we take time this weekend to celebrate Mother’s Day, I was shocked to see the lack of attention that major sports media gave to mothers (and women in general). Browsing sports news websites Sunday morning, I noticed the only times women were even mentioned on the home pages were the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition and Jessica Andrade’s strawweight victory, while in contrast, men had hundreds of headlines. I’m not trying to discredit the male athletes’ achievements and their newsworthiness, but the lack of mothers on this day in particular perpetuates a dangerous narrative: motherhood and athletics are mutually exclusive.
