A blog dedicated to discussions of gender and sports.

Saw an ad for a new movie about women and sports, Gracie, coming out June 1. I watched the trailer at the website and it looks good. It's about a high school girl who wants to join the boys' team after her brother, the star player, dies. It appears to take place maybe in the 70s because there was no girls' team for her to play on. It is not hiding the fact that it is a feel-good feature, but I am trying not to hold that against it. When I see it, I will report back.
