The Grass Ceiling

The Grass Ceiling

Three successful female athletes explore how being physically courageous, unapologetically competitive and deeply passionate in team sports enables them to feel confident in their own skin.

The Grass Ceiling is ostensibly a sports documentary, but like the essay it is based on, it is really so much more.
