Women Athletes

Series: Defying Convention: Women Who Changed the Rules

By Sherri Mabry-Gordon

It’s hard to believe, but there was a time not long ago when girls and women were discouraged from participating in sports. Thanks to the women who ignored society’s rules and also to a piece of legislation called Title IX, girls in the United States—and around the world—began flocking to tracks, fields, and courts to enjoy all the benefits that come from playing a sport. This book celebrates women athletes through the ages, from early Olympians to present powerhouses like Serena Williams and Missy Franklin. Also included are chapter notes, a glossary, a further reading section containing books and websites, and an index.
