The Center for Sport, Peace, and Society is incredibly excited to celebrate International Women’s Day by sharing their new podcast series, Strong Women. Better World., in partnership with the U.S. Department of State Sports Diplomacy Division.
The Strong Women. Better World. Podcast is a globe-trotting storytelling project about fearless women who are using the power of sport, education, and social innovation to create a better world. This sisterhood stands on the shoulders of pioneers who fought for the passage of Title IX, an educational amendment that gave rise to the female athlete in the United States and has significant worldwide ripple effects.
The Strong Women. Better World. Podcast celebrates the upcoming 50th anniversary of Title IX by raising awareness of its global footprint ahead of the landmark legislation’s June 2022 commemoration. Through intimate conversations with brave pioneers, listeners will learn about the challenges and successes these Title IX Titans encounter, and better understand the power of people-to-people exchanges through sport.
This passion project is the perfect illustration of the power of teamwork, the perseverance of strong women, and the potential for social change when we prioritize equality.
