What do Megan Rapinoe, Jessica McDonald, Christen Press, and Pele have in common?

They are all successful soccer athletes. How many have you heard of?

Women may have the right to vote, but in sports they still lack the respect and equal pay due for their talents….but that is changing as Women Got Game

November’s Doc Roundtable will explore two different yet complementary films which showcase gender inequities in women’s sports – soccer/futbol – and across society.

Join us as we bring together two films, WARRIORS OF A BEAUTIFUL GAME and LFG, and explore how these breakthrough documentaries explore the global impact of sports as a ticket out of poverty and follow a group of women who decided to sue the US Soccer Federation for wage discrimination.

You can see the trailer for LFG here

Equal parts inspiring and enraging – the stories are compelling and a part of an important cultural movement. 

Our evening will feature Producer Luis Castro and Director/Filmmaker Kely Nascimento of WARRIORS OF A BEAUTIFUL GAME and Abby Greensfelder, Founder/CEO of Everywoman Studios and Producer of LFG.
