Level the Playing Field: The Past, Present, and Future of Women's Pro Sports - Kristina Rutherford

Staff Pick

Young people now have a golden opportunity to learn about the past struggles that female athletes endured in an attempt to Level the Playing Field (Owlkids, $16.95). Author Kristina Rutherford describes the progress made in developing athletic opportunities with the enactment of Title IX in 1972, which allowed for a potential expanded fan base and the possibility of making a career in sports financially viable for women. Interviews with and references to famous athletes, including tennis phenomenon Serena Williams, WNBA players Maya Moore and Elena Delle Donne, and Little League star Mo’ne Davis, make this historical account clearly relevant to young athletes, male and female alike. Ages 10-14.
