Girls Just Wanna Work Sports
by Kelsey Tehan
Even in the year 2021, the few women who work in sports journalism are unfortunately still subjected to inequality and sexism in this male-dominated profession. More times than not, we fail to learn the stories from the women who experience it first-hand. In the Girls Just Wanna Work Sports podcast, we bring to light the realities of what it takes to be a woman working in this field. Listen along as we hear from three different women as they unpack their experiences and use their voices to ignite change in the industry.
