Wanted to follow up with a quick mention about the TOMBOY project that wrapped up at the end of March.
In case you missed it, NBC Sports released a wonderful documentary (by the same name) just a few weeks ago about women in sports and the challenges they (well, technically WE!) face. I was invited by CSN Philadelphia to be a major player in our market's promotion of and discussion around the event, and wanted to make sure everyone was able to get a taste of what they might have missed.
As I like to think of myself as a multi-platform journalist, my participation in TOMBOY crossed over from TV into digital. My favorite part of the project, in fact, was getting to write an essay about my relationship with the word itself. You can read that piece, entitled "I Don't Skate Like a Man" here.
Philly Sports Talk, CSN's flagship nightly discussion show, also featured a segment about women who play hockey. This was a really meaningful moment for me, being presented with the chance to speak with two other female hockey players about their experience in the sport. Check out a clip of the segment here.
Finally, after the debut of the documentary aired locally, Amy Fadool, Dei Lynam and I discussed our thoughts on the piece and talked about our own experiences in a Facebook Live video. The questions we got from viewers elevated the discussion even further than I could have imagined. Though the video is (obviously) no longer live, you can watch a reply right here.
