HONORING WOMEN'S OLYMPIC & PARALYMPIC LEGACIES TO INSPIRE THE NEXT GENERATION
Women's History Month, a time dedicated to reflecting on women’s often-overlooked contributions to history, offers the opportunity to co-create powerful storytelling.
Throughout time, women have been sidelined, underestimated, and doubted. Since the turn of the 20th century, when women were first able to compete in the Olympics, it’s been an uphill climb to solidify each woman's place in the Olympic and Paralympic history books.
So today... we celebrate women athletes whose history is rooted in Los Angeles. Unique and crucial pieces of the puzzle. Their ability to pursue their wildest dreams, defy barriers, and break rules has altered the very fabric of our city... shaking it to its core, and rebuilding it for the future.
All through the power of sport.
This Women's History Month, we honor the women raising the bar, fighting, marching, chasing their dreams, passing the torch, and carrying the flame. In the words of our newly elected MVP from the city of Los Angeles: "You may be the first to do many things, but make sure you are not the last." - Kamala Harris.
