Zara Phillips, the Queen's granddaughter, who won silver at the London Olympics, says broadcasters must show more women's sport.

 As an Olympic silver medallist, and a former winner of the BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year, Zara Phillips is respected for her achievements.

Now, the daughter of the Princess Royal wants to try to change broadcasters’ attitude to women’s sport. Phillips, 31, says female events should be given as much coverage as men’s sports.

“There has to be a change in the type of recognition women in sport get,” she demands. “How could there not be? The media need to help make things equal.”

I totally agree. There are a lot of sport events for women. They are as great as the ones for men.

She can start with herself; she can begin to work on her attitude towards winning her silver medal and second, while women's sports don't get as much mainstream attention, who is she to demand otherwise? Broadcasters cover women's sports, just not as widely as she wants I suppose.
