To the editor:
The Southeast Missourian sports page on Jan. 29 contained headlines of Southeast Missouri State's men's and women's basketball games.
The typeface was larger and in bold for the men's game -- the sixth straight loss -- than for the women's game, which was the Redhawks' sixth consecutive win.
One might expect the size of the headlines would mirror the importance of the two achievements.
Why get upset about gender inequality in sports headlines when that's the way it is everywhere? Rosa Parks might be respond by saying it doesn't have to be that way here -- meaning in the Southeast Missourian.
