Meet Amy Love, who along with her parents is instrumental in girls being able to play for their soccer teams in the US. It all started when Love moved back with her family from Brazil to the San Francisco Bay area. She was passionate about baseball and soccer and qualified to play for her soccer team in the East bay. But, it turns out that she was banned from playing for her team because she was a girl. Why can’t I play soccer Love asked her parents. That resulted in the Loves filing a class action suit, which they won. That legal victory allowed Love and other girls to play soccer for their teams in the US.
We sat down with Love to find out about her love for her sports that eventually led her to founding a magazine for women called Real Sports. The magazine now exists on the web. Love currently works as the Chief Marketing Officer of Violin Memory, a publicly traded company in Silicon Valley.
