Home Sweet Hardwood: A Title IX Trailblazer Breaks Barriers Through Basketball by McKinzie-Lechault, Pat [Paperback]
If you deny a woman's history, you erase her identity. For the first time, I reveal the athlete's story, from a female perspective, during forty years of rapid social change since the passage of Title IX. What makes it different from other sport biographies is the voice, of a woman who walks the talk, who dribbled the ball and tells the story. This is the book I longed to read when I was I coming of age. It is a tribute to my mother, my sisters, my coaches, my players and teammates, and all those who fought before me and along side me, so that today no female ever questions her right to be all that she can be. It speaks for the silent pioneers of the past and salutes our highflying daughters of today. So what? Who cares? Anyone coaching an athlete. Anyone playing ball. Anyone loving a game. Anyone raising a daughter. Anyone chasing a dream.
