Based upon the Instagram account @TheUnsungHeroines, an event of the pioneering, forgotten female professional athletes of the twentieth century that includes hardly ever seen pictures and brand-new interviews with previous and present video game changers including Abby Wambach and Cari Champion.Two years earlier,
filmmaker Molly Schiot began the Instagram account @TheUnsungHeroines, posting a picture each day of a female professional athlete who had actually altered the face of sports around the world in the pre-Title IX age. These ladies led the way for Serena Williams, Carli Lloyd, and Lindsey Vonn, yet few today understand who they are. Gradually however certainly, the account got a following, and the outcome is Game Changers, a magnificently illustrated collection of these trailblazers' rarely-before-seen pictures and stories.
Including icons Althea Gibson and Wyomia Tyus, complete unknowns Trudy Beck and Conchita Cintron, policymaker Margaret Dunkle, sportswriter Lisa Olson, and a lot more, Game Changers provides these "founding moms" the attention and recognition they are worthy of, and includes critical discussions between previous and present gamechangers-- including former United States Women's National Soccer Group captain Abby Wambach and SportsCenter anchor Cari Champion-- about exactly what it implies to be a woman on and off the field. Motivating, empowering, and memorable, Game Changers is the perfect gift for anybody who has a love of the video game.
