"We can’t help but be moved by the inspiring and at times heartbreaking stories of young women at the Games. From the track to the pool to the soccer pitch, young women are making us proud."
"When the two female athletes from Saudi Arabia entered the Olympic stadium, a Twitter user referred to them as the “prostitutes of the Olympics.” Wojdan Shaherkani went to compete in judo. There were lengthy negotiations about modifying her hijab, which her country insisted she wear, and the IOC relented. Even then the naysayers and the hardliners weren’t happy. She was accused of being dishonourable because she fought in front of men. Saudi television did not broadcast her fight. And while she may have lost her first match, her loss was a victory for a much greater fight."
