Global Activism: Global Sports Mentoring Program

Liz Stanton is taking time off from her Through Her Eyes Project to document the stories of 17 women from around the world. The women are in the U.S. for a program run by the University of Tennessee, the U.S. State Department, and espnW. It's called the Global Sports Mentoring Program. From one of the few Pakistani women covering sports as a journalist in her country, to one of Egypt's only female basketball leaders, the program reveals the challenges these women face and their dreams for their countries.
