Celebrating Women Athletes: Joan Benoit Samuelson, Lisa Leslie, Diana Taurasi and Marlen Esparza In Nike Promo

Diana Taurasi

Although a promo for Nike, this video focuses more on female empowerment through sports. It stars Joan Benoit Samuelson (running), Diana Taurasi (basketball), Lisa Leslie (basketball) and Marlen Esparza (boxing). It’s especially poignant for me to listen to how Joan and Lisa were shunned by their male counterparts early in their athletic lives.
