Minnesota Girls & Women in Sports Day is Wednesday!

National Girls & Women in Sport Day logoThe Tucker Center for Research on Girls & Women in Sport is proud to celebrate the 31st Annual National Girls and Women in Sports Day (NGWSD) on Wednesday, February 1. NGWSD is the premiere occasion to celebrate the participation, success, and accomplishments of girls and women athletes. As part of the celebration the Tucker Center is screening “The Founders,” a film about the “13 women who together battled society, prejudice, and preconception to create a lasting, global sporting legacy in golf.”  Members of the Tucker Team will be at the Minnesota History Museum to help honor one of those extraordinary women, Patty Berg, who will receive a Minnesota Legacy Award at the annual Minnesota Girls & Women in Sport Day.
