Lisa Leslie Makes Her Mark
Every woman—top politicians, activists, your neighbors, the one you just passed on the street—has her own story to tell. Makers, which started in 2012, is a video platform that intends to become the largest collection of women’s stories ever assembled. On Women’s Equality Day last week, it marked a milestone: former WNBA player Lisa Leslie became the subject of its 200th video. In 1994 Leslie was named the No. 1 player in women’s college basketball, and in 2002 she was the first player to dunk in the WNBA. Leslie, a four-time Olympic goal medalist and co-owner of the Los Angeles Sparks, says she hopes her video series—along with the other women highlighted in Makers—inspires young women to always keep dreaming.
