The issue of female reporters having access to locker rooms in professional sports has been in the news lately. Lisa Olson of the Boston Herald says she was harassed by several players in the New England Patriots locker room. And Monday night, Cincinnati Bengals coach Sam Wyche violated NFL policy when he banned USA Today reporter Denise Tom from his team's locker room after the game.

The NFL, like other pro sports organizations, has a policy of equal access to locker rooms for male and female reporters, who must conduct interviews there.

Should female reporters be allowed in pro locker rooms?

Should any reporters be allowed in pro locker rooms?
