A look at the growing popularity of women’s sports in the US and the stars that have made them famous.
The growth of women’s organized sports in the 20-21st century was due to their inclusion in the Olympics in the 1920s. It was a slow process, but through the decades there were a few standouts that today are largely unknown. The Olympics was then and is now the biggest stage for women athletes but Title IX encouraged the development of successful professional sports for women such as soccer, basketball, and track. In this class, we will look at the lives of some amazing American athletes who just happen to be women.
Special notice: This class will be delivered online. You will need access to a computer with an internet connection that remains stable for the duration of the class.
