Sometimes, there's damage done when all we focus on is winning.
This is second of two episodes featuring Patti Howes, head coach of the women's and men's fencing teams at Canada's Royal Military College (RMC) in Kingston, Ontario. We pick up where episode nine ends off, and branch into a broader conversation about what barriers and obstacles there are to the inclusion and retention of women and girls in sports, and Patti's role with the Canada Women & Sports foundation, whose mission is to help remove these barriers.
