Anita DeFrantz

  • Your goal should be out of reach but not out of sight.

    • Anita DeFrantz,
    • in Women of Note Quarterly ()
  • Martina Navratilova is not a 'girl,' nor is Debi Thomas or Katarina Witt, and the women skaters weren't 'cute' in 1988. The problem with describing women as girls is that they never grow up and therefore can't take positions of authority in the world of sport. But the good news is that you can change language, so ultimately you can change the picture of women in sports.
