Award-winning sports journalist Nancy Armour interviews icons, Olympians, and trailblazers in this eight-part series exploring how women have revolutionized sports as we know it, and the ripple effects they have on society as a whole. USA TODAY Sports is joined by Laurie Hernandez, Muffet McGraw, Nneka Ogwumike, Doris Burke and more. These women are journalists, coaches, and athletes from a variety of sports, including football, gymnastics, soccer, and BMX freestyle. Each have had very different lives and careers, but every single one of them offers fresh and interesting insight into how women have fought to shape the world of sports, and what they think still needs to be done. From the pressbox to the podium, this is how women are Changing the Game.
It’s not enough to mold women into champions. Women have to be each other’s champions. Former Notre Dame coach Muffet McGraw is the guest on the second episode of Changing the Game, and she explains why the lack of women in the top positions in women’s sports – and everywhere else – is unacceptable, and what she’s doing to make sure it ends with this generation.
