They are thought of by millions to hold the most glamorous job in sports. But according to complaints filed last month, and reviewed by MarieClaire. The complaints, filed by Florida-based attorney Sara Blackwell on behalf of former Dolphins cheerleader Kristan Ware and former Saints cheerleader Bailey Davis, paint a picture of a bleak environment in which cheerleaders are subject to inconsistent, draconian rules policing their personal lives and social media accounts, and offered little in the way of protection from over-excited—and often just plain gross—admirers.
Appearances with high-profile personalities in television turned her into a feminist folk hero after she complained about being fired for posting a photograph of herself in a lacy outfit. Yet those actions also made her the target of online attacks, not only from angry men, but also from cheerleaders who say she has made it harder for them to do their jobs. When Davis filed a sex discrimination case last year in late March against the Saints, accusing the team of having two standards, one for cheerleaders and another for players, she assumed few people would notice.

The film was made in the summer of in the cities of Cupertino, California and Sunnyvale, California.

Men will be making history during at the Super Bowl this weekend, but not just on the gridiron. The duo broke the gender barrier when they joined the team in March, becoming the first male cheerleaders in the NFL in recent memory or, at the least, the first since Male cheerleaders have had a presence in high school and college stunt-heavy cheerleading teams for years, but they have been largely absent from the cheerleading squads of pro teams.

For the photo shoot, at the adults-only Occidental Grand Papagayo resort on Culebra Bay, some of the cheerleaders said they were required to be topless, though the photographs used for the calendar would not show nudity. Others wore nothing but body paint.
Professional cheerleaders are in the news these days and we should be thankful. A few examples include:. The suits against the teams describe various indignities that the women faced as cheerleaders, including low pay, ridiculously long hours, and sexual harassment. These developments, while obviously deplorable and certainly deserving of attention on behalf of the women involved, force to the surface a range of smoldering questions that have been screaming for attention for decades:.
The report adds to the growing pile of evidence that NFL cheerleaders across the league are forced to work under unfair conditions, and, as suggested by the women who spoke to the Times, often beyond the confines of their jobs on the football field. During a calendar photo shoot trip to Costa Rica, the cheerleaders said, the team invited a group of all-male sponsors and FedExField suite holders to watch the squad members pose topless or in nothing but body paint for their photos. Several of them began to cry.
