Throughout history, women have been told that they couldn't achieve their dreams, no matter how hard they tried. Woman athletes have faced their own unique set of challenges across countless sports and levels of play, and continue to come up against roadblocks even today, making the persistance and triumph of the althetes included even more impressive. She Persisted in Sports is a book for everyone who has ever aimed for a goal and been told it wasn't theirs to hit, for everyone who has ever raced for a finish line that seemed all too far away, for everyone who has ever felt overlooked or unimportant while out on the field.
