Far too often, women's athletics are ignored or even ridiculed in comparison to the male-dominated world of sports. Male and female bodies are different, and therefore male and female sports are different. However, that does not mean that woman's athletics are less interesting or important in any way. In light of the U.S. Women's Soccer team success and Misty Copeland's accomplishment as the first African American ballerina to be promoted to principal dancer at the American Ballet Theater, I find this article perfectly fitting. The author shares an insightful dialogue and praise surrounding female-focused athletics and empowering advertising such as this. Let's give a huge s/o to Under Armour for acknowledging that female athletes, and females in general, are strong in every way and deserve to be praised accordingly.
