The Women’s Sports Foundation is thrilled to announce its collaboration with First Book, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing books and educational resources to schools and programs in underserved communities.
This partnership will empower girls with stories that ignite their passion for sports and lead to discussion on topics related to their experiences.
The Discussion Guide
At the core of the partnership is a Discussion Guide produced by WSF and First Book. The guide centers around six themes — body image, power, fuel, joy, diversity and leadership — with a goal of empowering and educating girls through books and physical activity. The Discussion Guide was designed to help adults facilitate thoughtful, safe discussions with girls around key topics related to the experiences that young girls have today.
In the Community
WSF is providing our community partners with a curated collection of books that feature strong and active female leading characters.
WSF believes that all girls deserve equitable opportunities to develop their personal potential through the benefits of sports and physical activity. Partnering with First Book brings exciting new tools to help achieve this goal.
We encourage you to explore the “Empowering Stories about Women & Girls” section of the First Book Marketplace, some of which are included in the curated list we sent to our community partners.
