Keep It Moving

We here at the Cut already love a little competition. Adrenaline and ambition, too. It’s no secret that female athletes, college and professional, continue to make gains in pay and TV-airtime equity, shatter records, and break into once male-dominated sports. So what better time to be a fan of women in sports than right now as part of this community? We hope you’ll find something here that makes you want to play, cheer, or assume control of your favorite sports bar’s TVs.
