The real lesson of the Mo'Ne Davis story

+

So while it’s great that a 13-year-old girl was treated as an accomplished athlete, I’d be more grateful if Candace Parker and Diana Taurasi, two of the greatest basketball players on earth, didn’t have to spend the winter in Russia just to make a decent living.

Davis’s real future, once the androgens kick in, will probably consist of a long fight for funding, audience and decent pay, if she is lucky enough to win a scholarship to play college basketball and get to the WNBA.

From "Mo’ne Davis is out of Little League World Series, and women’s sports are shoved from spotlight" by Sally Jenkins of the Washington Post.
