When all women win all men win and all humanity wins!!!! I'm sitting here watching the women's World Cup Finals with tears on my eyes. Yes, I could be crying because the U.S, lost. But that's not my story.
I had to work today, and all of the men in the house where I was were glued to the women's finals. When I got home, my facebook feed was all about men and women's reactions, minute by minute, to this same game. I walked into my house and my husband is screaming at the top of his lungs mesmerized by the women competing.
Yes we've seen this all before, women's soccer, women's basketball, women's tennis, women's golf. But it does appear that the critical mass of women in sports is getting truly closer to parity in a meaningful way.
Yes it's heartbreaking for our U.S. team to lose. I see the sad faces of the players. But we will avenge this loss, and when the World Cup returns in 4 years, the whole world will be watching, men and women. We women are not a curiousity. We play, we compete, and we are awesome. And the whole world knows it!!!!
