โ€” โ€œIf you think conduct like this is past tense for these organizations, think again. Throughout 2020 and 2021, the USOPC and USAG have perpetuated their coverup with civil court motions. They have hidden from accountability with bankruptcy proceedings.

Seeing this tweet has prompted me to put my money where my mouth is around supporting women.

For #IWD2021 I plan to buy from Aussie women ... please hit me up with links for online biz'. I will share them here in a thread.

For 2021, I want to support with cash, not just words.
Just ordered my first item as part of my IWD #cashnotwords pledge! Excited for my earrings to arrive @DrScienceLover - thank you!!
I just bought some gorgeous art from this Aussie woman's online biz. Do check her out ...

Today nutrition. Young cricketers need to be fit and able to play six hours a day, repeatedly. For the girls in the u15 national championships, it's six full days of cricket out of seven. They need energy, bone health, hydration, growth and development. #WomenInSport #Cricket
Poor nutrition plays a part in tiredness, poor concentration and an increased risk of injury. #WomenInSport #Cricket
Cricketers who are on the pathway towards the elite level have access to a nutritionist, who gives them talks and information and is on the end of the phone or email for questions.
