Girls with Guts!: The Road to Breaking Barriers and Bashing Records based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
We have so many books now about amazing women athletes, lots of inspiring biographies. But getting the long view of the history of women in sports allows us to put it all in perspective. Gonzales shares a string of fabulous females who broke through when participating in sports wasn’t accepted…all the way to the 1970s when women pushed for social change and Title IX finally came along. Opportunities opened up for young girls and accomplished female athletes began to flourish. And now, just look at the US Women’s Soccer Team! WOOHOO! And this means so much more when you can see the long journey of women and girls in sports. There’s a great timeline in the back matter and an extensive bibliography.
