Case Study #3: ESPN's 30 for 30 Podcast- Six Who Sat
LIST-4923-CC4 - Special Topics
Listen to ESPN's 30 for 30 Podcast: Six Who Sat that details the women who fought and pushed the boundaries of the running world in the late 60s and early 70s. This podcast recounts two specific events that broke the mold set for women in running up to this point in history. These women were pioneers and fought for equality in an era of change. Because running is a field that can be viewed as an equalizing force, it doesn't discriminate who you are, your background, body makeup, or age; it is interesting to look back and see how women were treated within this field fifty years ago.
