In May, Vice President Molly Kazmer was featured on ESPN’s Vince’s Place on a series titled “Queens of the Court,” highlighting her contribution to women’s basketball.
Recently, President Elizabeth Galloway-McQuitter spoke at a TEDxBoston Event. This series included talks about the revolutionary changes women brought to sports 50 years after Title IX.
As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Title IX, we want to shed light on its role in providing opportunities for members of the WBL, pioneers of women’s professional basketball and the stars who helped grow the sport at every level. These players, coaches, and team personnel continued to “pass it on and pay it forward”. We invite you to join us in support of this great cause.
