Wow! You know those things that you never knew you never had? That you never knew you always wanted?
Until I was introduced to the work that Ashley Hartis doing with her two best friends at She Plays I never would have thought to think that women athletes are not represented with Fantasy Sports! As an athlete growing up my idols were Michael Jordan and Larry Bird. I was older when the WNBA came out and it was still so new that it wasn’t part of the conversation. Women athletes were not part of the conversation. Our coaches were men. Our referees were men.
It’s okay. It was what it was. But things- they are changing. All you have to do is listen to Ashley to understand that. This work is so important and getting to hear from someone who is in there doing it is insightful, inspiring, hopeful, and fills us with gratitude and excitement.
