These girls changed the game!

Celebrate the strength, endurance, and athleticism of women and girls throughout the ages! Meet women athletes from the late 1800s up through the 1970s, when Title IX was passed. Share with young readers how women refused to take no for an answer, and how finally, they pushed for a law to protect their right to play, compete, and be athletes.
