The WNBA has ramped up its community outreach and civil servitude in anticipation of its International Women’s Day celebration on March 8, when the world annually celebrates the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women across the globe.
A month ago, WNBA legend Teresa Weatherspoon AKA T-Spoon, former WNBA star Taj McWilliams-Franklin, the Washington Mystics’ Natasha Cloud, former UConn star and WNBA player Ashley Battle and WNBA Head of League Operations Bethany Donaphin all participated in the joy of recess with girls at a Brooklyn school to celebrate National Girls and Women in Sports Day.
