JESSICA GAVORA is a Washington writer and public policy expert. She is currently the chief speechwriter for Attorney General John Ashcroft and a senior policy advisor at the Department of Justice.
A former athlete herself, Jessica Gavora interviewed dozens of leading college athletes, educators and legal experts for this provocative, yet carefully researched book. She argues that the 1999 World Cup victory of the U.S. Women’s Soccer team, for instance, widely seen as a Title IX triumph, was actually the result of a far more profound social revolution that has changed America’s mind about sexual roles and female destiny.
