In the 1970s, at a time when the feminist movement was finding it’s voice and women marched in the streets for equal rights, NFL cheerleaders found themselves in ever-skimpier costumes being chased around by ever-desperate cameramen. As the number of squads grew, and became a sensation on the sidelines, Playboy Magazine proposed a pictorial spread. With some women agreeing to pose nude, this igniting a media firestorm and leading to cheerleaders across the country being abruptly fired. SIDELINED is a timely reflection on the untold stories of the women at the heart of this controversy.
