WNBA Athletes Raise Their Voices & Their Game

WNBA Athletes Raise Their Voices & Their Game

November 9, 2020

Women's basketball, led by the WNBA, powerhouse college programs and star supporters, is building momentum. The athletes are taller, faster, stronger and highly-skilled, with a growing fan base.   Something else is changing, too.  Similar to USA Women's Hockey and the USA Women's' Soccer team, WNBA players are beginning to flex their collecttive power to address gender inequities and social issues. The WNBA Players Association dedicated their 2020 season to the Black Lives Matter movement, but that was just the beginning of their collective activism in the wake of multiple deaths of African Americans at the hands of police and a presidential battle for the soul of America. Elizabeth Williams of the Atlanta Dream and Natalie Achonwa of the Indiana Fever share what they've learned about leadership, using your power and never settling!
