Bannockburn, IL, September 10, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The internet and visual media broadcasted around the world a little league fan in the stands proudly waving a homemade sign “I want to throw like a girl.” He, like others supporting Mo’ne Davis in her Cinderella story decided that, to “throw like a girl,” wasn’t so bad after all. His mantra however would soon be forgotten as are most athletic, in-the-heat-of-the-moment proclamations.
Enter, Vicki Martin. About a year ago, Ms. Martin the mother of an athletic 10 year-old girl made the decision to let capitalism help her turn the phrase ‘throw like a girl’ from a sexist slam into a business grand slam. Vicki created the apparel and sports accessory company, Throw Like a Girl.com, with the idea that taking the negative stigma away from the metaphor would help to empower young woman in all athletic endeavors. Mo’ne Davis came along, and for a short couple of weeks became the poster girl for Ms. Martin’s campaign. Now however it is good old fashion capitalism that will continue to motivate the sports community and girls everywhere into being proud of the fact that they “Throw Like a Girl”.
