If you've played a team sport, you understand just how influential they can be. Having an understanding of camaraderie, competition, and collaboration can change the course of someone's life. For a long time, those benefits were only afforded to men. Enter Title IX.

This week, Sara Gross interviews Janet Cone - the athletic director at UNC Asheville. Janet has been in this role for over 18 years and has made monumental progress for women's sports by adding both women’s golf and women’s swimming to its NCAA lineup. Sara and Janet discuss the changes that have come over the past 50 years and the effort it took, and continues to take, to create equal opportunities for women and girls in sport.
