BOONE: World Cup women show how far we’ve come, still have to go
"The increased success of women’s professional sports hinges on changed attitudes and on the chicken-egg factors of greater female youth sports participation and increased economic power for female professional sports. For these things to happen, the right messages must be sent to young boys and girls about female athletics. Women’s professional sports will gain economic clout when millions of young girls want to worship, watch and wear the jerseys of their female heroes. They deserve those heroes as much as boys do," says columnist Ron Boone.
