'Women's sports have needed a manifesto for a long time. With Good for a Girl we finally have one' Malcolm Gladwell

Lauren Fleshman was of the most decorated collegiate athletes of all time and a national champion as a pro, before becoming a coach for elite young female runners. Every step of the way, she has seen how our sports systems fail young women and girls as much as empower them.
