Trailblazing Women in Sports Honored at Vice President Kamala Harris’ Women’s History Month Celebration

Vice President Kamala Harris recently hosted a Women’s History Month celebration at her Washington residence, joined by the Women’s Sports Foundation. The event honored trailblazing women in sports, with over 100 attendees including accomplished athletes and influential figures from the world of sports.

Nikki Fargas, president of the Las Vegas Aces, Renee Montgomery, retired WNBA player and part owner of the Atlanta Dream, and Lisa Leslie, a three-time WNBA MVP and four-time Olympic gold medalist, were among those who praised the contributions of these trailblazing women.

During the event, Vice President Harris emphasized the importance of daily work to benefit people of all genders. She highlighted the significance of providing equitable access to opportunities in sports to help develop strong leaders and build a more resilient nation. Her mother had advised her about being the first and paving the way for others, stressing the importance of self-empowerment and standing up for oneself.

To support female athletes further, Harris has made surprise visits to young female athletes across the country. She visited coach Dawn Staley and the University of South Carolina women’s basketball team in January and recently surprised St. Paul Central High School softball team.

Sheila Matthews, a digital producer at Andscape and an HBCU graduate, believes that it is essential to recognize and celebrate women’s achievements in sports while advocating for gender equality in all fields.
