“Can you tell us about your outfit?” That’s the question put to big-name athletes in this video. The big difference?

CoverTheAthlete.com has launched the campaign, #CoverTheAthlete to call for equal media treatment for female athletes.

The video closes with the controversial interview with Canadian tennis player Eugenie Bouchard at this year’s Australian Open, where Tennis Australia commentator Ian Cohen asked Bouchard to twirl for the camera and show off her clothes.
