Description
It was a long time coming -- decades of arguments over Title IX, suburban moms carting their daughters off to practice, and changing attitudes in schools and the workplace. But on that summer day in 1999, when the U.S. women's soccer team triumphed in the World Cup, the revolution was complete: women's sports had arrived. Now one of the nation's finest sportswriters, chief Olympics correspondent for the New York Times, takes a serious, compelling look at the women who won and the deeper meaning of their victory.

Jere Longman places the U.S. World Cup championship in its athletic, cultural, and historical contexts. He also explores the issues it has raised: the importance of the players as role models; the significance of race and class; the sexualization of the team members; and the differences between men and women's sports.
