Nancy Hogshead-Makar is an American swimmer who won 3 gold and 1 silver medal at the 1984 Olympics. She was a champion in the pool from a very early age, but her impact on sport and particularly for women in sport extends well beyond the pool.
With a law degree from Georgetown University, she's been a long-time champion for women on issues including equal play, Title IX compliance, sexual harassment, abuse and assault, as well as employment, pregnancy, and LGBT discrimination. She is currently the CEO of Champion Women, an organization leading targeted efforts to change policy and advocate for equality and accountability in sport.
Shanna and Kara interview Nancy to discuss all of it. It's impossible to truly understand and summarize Nancy's story in a few sentences so we just encourage you to listen, be a fan, and consider ways to stand with Nancy as a champion for women in sport. We are so thankful to have her leading the way for so many.
