Sporting Fashion looks at the extraordinary impact of new technologies and evolving social mores on women’s clothing for sport. 19th-century bathing and bicycling garments alongside 20th-century apparel for boxing and airplane piloting demonstrate the modernity, individuality, and mobility of the "new woman" and connect to women’s continued fight for equality.
