Tucker Center Talks: S3E15 - Why Women Need to Disrupt

On this week’s episode, Nicole talks to some #disruptHERS colleagues — Drs. Katie Lebel, Nancy Lough, and Ann Pegoraro — about recent disruptions in women’s sport, which continue to make headlines. They begin with the recent situation surrounding Chinese tennis player Peng Shuai, 35, a three-time Olympian, who has been missing since November 2, when she used social media to accuse Zhang Gaoli, 75, a former vice premier of China, of sexually assaulting her at his home three years ago. The IOC President Thomas Bach held a video call with Peng, which was unconvincing to experts. The many reported incidents of abuse and harassment by coaches in the National Women’s Soccer League is also discussed. They conclude with why women’s sports needs men as allies to oust offenders and why leadership in sport needs women to move the needle.Host: Dr. Nicole LaVoiRecorded: November 22, 2021For more information, links and resources and hundreds more conversations from the world of women’s sport including articles, blogs, videos and podcasts visit wispsports.com.
