Storyline

Title IX opened up opportunities not only for world-class athletes but to small town girls as well. The film examines the impact of the anti-discrimination legislation on a small Midwest town where there were no varsity sports for girls before it passed. Interviews feature tennis stars Billie Jean King and Rosie Casals, Olympians including Jennie Finch and members of the first girls team from Pinckney, MI. The documentary is narrated by the filmmaker, a former LA Times journalist, who played for the PHS junior varsity team that first year. Written by Anonymous
