When I step on board to push or promote a product or message, it is always because I believe in it 100%. I have always been that way. Integrity is something my father taught me at a young age. So when I say this video is something you MUST watch...I mean it. Not because I have been asked to, but because I have sat and watched it over and over, listening and hanging on to every word said in this manifesto. I get it.
After having the priviledge of getting a sneak peak at the book...I bought 5. What can I say, it's powerful.
Just watch, it's worth it, you will see...
In the middle of writing this, I had to pause to deal with a little bit of work, which prompted me to write this post on Facebook, which I feel I should share with you because it relates to this very topic...
Amazing how I speak up for women's sports here, I end up getting an endless number of men say to me comments like "Chill. Don't take it so seriously. It's no big deal. Don't be a leader, let someone else do it. It is not worth stressing yourself. No one pays that much attention."
Let me tell you - it is worth it. It is a big deal. Someone needs to. You are saying all the wrong things to a girl who lived through the era of Title 9 and having to listen to loads of American men say the same bullshit things to women who pushed for the same thing there a couple decades ago.
On the backside - I love and appreciate the women who have given their support and have backed me on this.
Sports at all levels is an essential part to helping women and men, girls and boys develop physical skills, discipline, learning how to communicate and work together, to help one another and build a community together.
Sports for women and men are important at all ages. When children see their mothers and fathers playing and doing something they loved as a kid, it leaves an ever-lasting impact.
You will not silence me on this matter.
