When I play is a women-created and produced short film that focuses on the positive aspects of women in sports.
As you may or may not know, March is Women’s History Month, and the best way to celebrate that is to take a moment to reflect on where we are as women, and where we hope to go in the future. Sports have always been a controversial issue in terms of women’s rights, and even today women struggle with being taken seriously as professional athletes.
When I Play is a short film that recently premiered on ESPN that focuses on the inspiration to be found in athletic women, and the self-esteem, team-building skills, and sense of accomplishment sports offer to young girls.
