About this item

Based on the Instagram account @TheUnsungHeroines, a celebration of the pioneering, forgotten female athletes of the twentieth century that features rarely seen photos and new interviews with past and present gamechangers including Abby Wambach and Cari Champion.Two years ago, filmmaker Molly Schiot began the Instagram account @TheUnsungHeroines, posting a photo each day of a female athlete who had changed the face of sports around the globe in the pre-Title IX age. These women paved the way for Serena Williams, Carli Lloyd, and Lindsey Vonn, yet few today know who they are. Slowly but surely, the account gained a following, and the result isGame Changers, a beautifully illustrated collection of these trailblazers’ rarely-before-seen photos and stories.Featuring icons Althea Gibson and Wyomia Tyus, complete unknowns Virginia Gilder and Conchita Cintron, policymaker Patsy Mink, sportswriter Lisa Olson, and many more,Game Changers gives these “founding mothers” the attention and recognition they deserve, and features critical conversations between past and present gamechangers—including former US Women’s National Soccer Team captain Abby Wambach andSportsCenter anchor Cari Champion—about what it means to be a woman on and off the field. Inspiring, empowering, and unforgettable,Game Changers is the perfect gift for anyone who has a love of the game.
