Susie Petruccelli, RAISED A WARRIOR: A Memoir of Soccer, Grit, and Leveling the Playing Field

"We're all expecting things to be better for our daughters, but I honestly am worried that we're going to lose the rights that we already have." Zibby is joined by Susie Petruccelli, former captain of the Harvard women's soccer team and author of Raised a Warrior, to discuss her book, her career, and her love of the sport. The two talk about what it's like to be a twin, the relationship Susie had with her dad and sports, and how her identity changed when she could no longer play soccer. Susie shares when she realized how perilous it is to be a woman in the United States where we have often come to take the existence of human rights laws for granted.
