Society needs to shine brighter light on females



I love cheering for Mo’ne Davis. The 13-year-old Philadelphia pitcher, who happens to be a girl, is making quite a name for herself at the Little League World Series.

If only we were cheering as loudly for Mo’ne and other young female athletes on the softball field. Or anywhere else in girls sports.

But Davis is a novelty, a girl crashing a boys’ party.
