Ep #239: The un-level playing field: Parenthood in sports
On today’s episode of The GIST of It, co-hosts Ellen Hyslop and Steph Rotz are diving into a crucial topic — parenthood in sports. Over the weekend, WNBA star Dearica Hamby shared claims that her former team, the Las Vegas Aces, discriminated against her for being pregnant. Beyond unacceptable.
Hamby’s allegations also come on the heels of other recent stories of mistreatment across sports, sparking a broader discussion about support, or lack thereof, for elite athletes who choose to become parents. El and Steph detail it all, then consider what comes next in this ongoing conversation. Thanks for tuning in!
