“I was never told about masturbation. I was never told about the clitoris. My family is from West Africa and I had a lot of internal shame about my body and about my sexuality.

Today only 2% of sports broadcasting is dedicated to women’s sports.” – Allison Dellicarri is a student at Marist College and an accomplished runner on their track and field team.
