A web docu-series that looks at extraordinary female athletes who may not be getting the recognition they deserve.
In the United States, women’s sports remain an underfunded arena and are still very much a “boys club”. While mid-level male athletes earn enough to be set for life after a short-lived career, some members of the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team, the current FIFA World Cup Champions, may have to juggle other jobs to support their pro career. The same is true of every other sport. Where do these incredible athletes find the passion to bruise for the sport they love? This is the question that this web series sets out to explore. We will feature underreported female athletes with inspiring stories, in disciplines ranging from soccer to rugby to motorcycle racing and athletics.
