More About Warrior Girls by Michael Sokolove
 
 
 
Overview
Now available in paperback, the urgent argument for saving the futures of female athletes (USA TODAY).
Controversial and compelling: The Warrior Girls excerpts in The New York Times Magazine and The Washington Post received an overwhelming response. Warrior Girls has spurred a relevant debate that continues on websites devoted to sports, parenting, and women s health.
The ignored injury epidemic: Well over one million girls play high school soccer, basketball, lacrosse, and volleyball. But women s collegiate soccer players suffer concussions at the same rate as college football players. most alarming are the high rates of knee injuries involving the anterior cruciate ligament, or ACL, which girls tear eight times more often than boys.
A crucial look at a culture in denial: Advocates of women s sports worry that acknowledging the injury epidemic will threaten our daughters hard-won opportunities on the field. Warrior Girls examines these shocking truths and offers hopeful solutions for encouraging female athletes to play well and safely."
