Here at The IX, you’ll get plugged-in coverage of women’s tennis from Joey Dillon. Annie Peterson on women’s soccer. Howard Megdal on women’s hoops. Thursday, Carly Grenfell on women’s golf. Friday, Erica Ayala on women’s hockey. We do this every day.

To us, covering women in sports isn’t an exception to be celebrated, it needs to be the everyday reality. And it is part of a larger change that needs to happen, especially in media, to truly bring equality into the sports world. Sports is a mirror to society — every time women’s sports are cast aside, we see something ugly.

Celebrate that reality by supporting reporters who tirelessly do the work to change that reflection, every single day. Join us. Subscribe to The IX. In honor of #NGWSD, enjoy this special discount off our regular subscription rate. And help us be the media coverage you want for women’s sports.
