It's hard to believe, but there was a time not long ago when girls and women were discouraged from participating in sports. Thanks to the women who ignored society's rules and also to a piece of legislation called Title IX, girls in the United States, and around the world, began flocking to tracks, fields, and courts to enjoy all the benefits that come from playing a sport. This book celebrates women athletes through the ages, from early Olympians to present powerhouses like Serena Williams and Missy Franklin. Also included are chapter notes, a glossary, a further reading section containing books and websites, and an index.
