From the onset of Title IX in 1972 to the U.S. women’s national soccer team winning the 2019 World Cup, women have paved the way in all areas of sports for future generations. In this episode of Medill Newsmakers we take a look at how far women have come and how far they still have to go. Watch the journey through the lens of a female sports reporter, collegiate athlete, MLB front office hopeful and a youth softball team.
