Only 3 women made the ESPN World Fame 100 list. Here’s why.

In an article exploring the new methodology and results of ESPN’s fourth annual Top 100 List, ESPN senior writer Peter Keating writes:

How is that possible? Partly because of the consequences of the first two lessons: It’s hard to crack the boys club of supercelebrity. But also because of a third point: Fame is a reflection of the male gaze.”
