International Women's Day
Inspirational female athletes throughout history
Being a female athlete hasn't always been easy. Though the fight for equality continues, these revolutionaries have paved the way for a brighter future.
Though the road to gender equality is a long and arduous one, we have already come a very long way in many parts of the world. In sports, women's are marketed much less, there are less opportunities, and in many cases, there is still a huge pay gap. Taking a look back at where women in sports were just 60 years ago, though, can help understand how far we've come and just how much we've achieved.
Several female athletes have helped revolutionize women in sports and will inspire you to keep the movement going.
