What is it about women's sport that some people do not get? How long has it been since the passage of Title IX? When was it that Billy Jean King convinced the USTA to give equal prize money to women? The answer is much longer than Apple has had an 'I" or a "phone."

The movie can be gritty and somewhat dark, but in the end it's hopeful. We made a difference. We helped some people abused by priests. Not everyone, but we did help. And that is tremendously gratifying.

Watching Spotlight brought back all the shame, anger, and grief that seared me fourteen years ago when the scandal first broke. The sexual exploitation of children is horrible enough. But that the predators were priests was a body blow no one saw coming.
