Call this a win for women's sports -- it appears that people want to watch it after all. It's time to recognize the incredible potential of women's sports and give female athletes the support and recognition they deserve.
The recent NCAA women's basketball national championship game has shattered previous records, with an incredible 9.9 million viewers tuning in to watch the historic match. In fact, the game peaked at 12.6 million viewers, according to ESPN, making it the most-watched women's college basketball game in history.
For too long, women's sports have been undervalued and overlooked in comparison to men's sports. Despite the incredible athleticism and skill displayed by female athletes, they often receive less media coverage and fewer opportunities to compete at the highest levels.
However, the record-breaking viewership of the NCAA women's basketball championship game sends a clear message: people want to watch women's sports.
