What I would like for you to do is pretend that you are the historian expert witness serving Caster Semenya in her case. Semenya is fighting the latest CAS decision and World Athletics/IAAF policy in the Swiss courts — the Swiss Federal Tribunal. Drawing from Pieper and Gleaves (“Too Fit to Fly”– there are 2 Gleaves’ articles this module) and the 4 links below, how could you build an argument that the Olympic Movement (including organizations within the Olympic Movement, like World Athletics/the IAAF) has a long history of gender policing? Also, how could you make the argument, grounded in the historical record, that many ideas about gender and ability are based on an assumption of female inferiority? Be sure to answer both questions in your first post (the essay).
For your convenience, here are the three links again. Be sure to also pull from the assigned readings by Pieper (book chapter PDFs) and Gleaves (“Too Fit to Fly”) to inform your essay.

And remember, regardless of your personal opinion on this matter, you are serving as historian expert witness for Caster Semenya and her legal team. It’s a worthwhile exercise to make and support an argument.
