5 Female Sports Icons on What Women’s Equality Means to Them

Shawn Johnson, Gail Devers, Julie Foudy, and more share their words of wisdom on women’s equality.

Yesterday was Women’s Equality Day. And just after the Olympics, and in the middle of the Paralympics, we found ourselves reaching out to the female athletes we know to get their thoughts on what this day means to them. From Shawn Johnson to Gail Devers to Julie Foudy, these women shared words of wisdom on gender equality. And we’re sharing them with you now because we celebrate and push for gender parity every day.
