In this week’s episode, Lorraine sits down with Karen Ramirez, founder of Sporting Sheroes, an organization that champions women in sports. Karen’s mission is to see more female athletes achieve their full potential, both on and off the pitch.

Karen shares her journey of falling in love with sports and why she chose to work with a wide spectrum of ages, starting with grassroots, instead of focusing solely on elite athletes. She also reveals some of the most rewarding experiences she’s had so far.

Karen also discusses why the media should give women’s sports greater coverage and what changes within the industry have made her excited about the future of sports, especially for women. Additionally, she touches on why she believes sexism is one of the biggest issues of modern sports and what can be done to combat it.
