The Unsung Heroines of Sports HistoryBook - 2016
Based on the Instagram account @TheUnsungHeroines, a celebration of the pioneering, forgotten female athletes of the twentieth century that features rarely seen photos and new interviews with past and present gamechangers including Abby Wambach and Cari Champion. Featuring icons Althea Gibson and Wyomia Tyus, complete unknowns Virginia Gilder and Conchita Cintron, policymaker Patsy Mink, sportswriter Lisa Olson, and many more, Game Changers gives these "founding mothers" the attention and recognition they deserve, and features critical conversations between past and present gamechangers - including former US Women's National Soccer Team captain Abby Wambach and SportsCenter anchor Cari Champion - about what it means to be a woman on and off the field.
