Thank you to Dana Bookman for joining us for this discussion about girls' baseball, girls in sports and Toronto girls baseball. Dana Bookman is the founder and CEO of Toronto Girls Baseball and the Canadian Women’s Baseball Association. She started Toronto Girls Baseball for her six year old daughter, who loves the game but wanted to quit after a season of being the only female player in a league made up of 400 boys.
Today, Toronto Girls Baseball is the only all-girls baseball league in Canada for girls ages 4-16. It grew 840% in the first year alone and has served almost 550 girls so far. In spring 2018 league is expanding to three locations in the GTA and also to Nova Scotia and Manitoba.
Women are under-represented globally, adversely affecting our collective health, safety, and economic security. Women’s March Canada seeks fair and just representation of women locally, nationally, and internationally.
