Viewpoints producer Annie Krall interviewed the first female high school football player in Texas to play, score, and win a state championship game: K-Lani Nava. Nava is also a huge women’s soccer fan. The U.S. Women’s World Cup victory this summer was monumental and potentially the catalyst for lasting change according to developmental psychologist Dr. Christia Spears Brown. Brown studies gender identity in young kids and she is excited to see what comes of gender barriers in sports.
