Female Reporter Barred From Masters Locker Room
Controversy broke out at Augusta National Golf Club after The Bergen Record sports columnist Tara Sullivan was barred from the locker room because of her gender.
“Bad enough no women members at Augusta,” Sullivan tweeted. “But not allowing me to join writers in locker room interview is just wrong.”
Masters officials apologized to Sullivan and claimed that it was a security mistake. The club hires a number of people to work the tournament and the guard was apparently unaware of the equal-access policy that applies to reporters but not women looking to join.
