Happy National Girls and Women in Sports Day!

February 3, 2010

“Each year as we celebrate National Girls and Women in Sports Day, we are reminded of the importance of maintaining a focus on, and creating an awareness of, the important issues facing women and girls in this country and beyond.The powerful combination of sports, health and education found in programs administered by organizations like the Women’s Sports Foundation not only directly benefits women and girls today, it lays a foundation for growth for generations to come.” — Women’s Sports Foundation Founder Billie Jean King

A IWFFA Blog affiliate, Women Talk Sports, put together some remarkable photos of women and girls in sports. Check it out.

  1. What an awesome day! I feel that sports really shaped my character growing up…I was so lucky to be able to participate! 🙂 I played softball for 10 years and learned the essence of teamwork, winning, losing and never giving up. The Women’s Sports Foundation is Awesome!
