Athletes for Gender Equity: Billie Jean King, the U.S. Women's Soccer Team, and More

Women have long had to fight for their place in the world of sports. Early long distance runners were told running more than a mile might damage their uterus; male tennis players claimed that even a retired player could be a woman at the top of her game; and top-tier teams were paid less than men because "women's games don't draw in revenue." But thanks to the tireless efforts of trailblazing athletes and activists, women athletes continue to prove that they belong in the game!

From tennis legend Billie Jean King to the U.S. Women's Soccer Team, this book will help young readers discover the pro athletes who have used their platform to speak out and affect change for all women. With profiles of pioneering athletes and additional information about how factors like misinformation about women's health and disparities in funding have affected women's sports, this is an eye-opening look at how far women athletes have come — and how far we still have to go.
