Recently former NCAA women’s swimmer Riley Gaines helped lead a protest over the NCAA’s policies that allow transgenders athletes to participate in women’s sports. Gaines and about two dozen demonstrators showed up outside the NCAA convention with a petition signed by nearly 10,000 people. Gaines said, “Today, we intend to personally tell the NCAA to stop discriminating against female athletes by handing them a petition…” Former NCAA athlete and co-founder of the Independent Council on Women’s Sports, Marshi Smith, outlined the council’s demands in a letter that was sent to the NCAA’s legal team.
