In this chapter I focus on sexism and sport with a focus on the context of Higher Education (HE) in the UK. I start with a brief introduction to the importance of work on discrimination before offering ways feminists have challenged sexism and misogyny. The latter involves a turn to the idea of feministkilljoys (Ahmed, 2010) and a return to the work of Joan Smith (1989). I consider contemporary sexism and misogyny within sporting cultures and practices in HE in the UK. I end with the idea of networks of solidarity as one way to challenge and transform discrimination in sport.
