Jere Longman (au). The world of women’s sports changed forever on July 10, 1999, the day the U.S. soccer team defeated China in a penalty-kick shoot-out in the Women’s World Cup. Here Longman provides an intimate account of the epic final & an inside look at the cultural phenomenon that is U.S. women’s soccer. With revealing profiles of such superstars as Mia Hamm, Michelle Akers, Brandi Chastain, & Briana Scurry, Longman illuminates the larger issues surrounding their success -- their newfound status as role models, the media’s sexualization of the team members, players’ grappling with matters of race, alleged sexual harassment, & equal pay for equal play, as well as the battle to establish an enduring legacy of female participation in the sport.
