San Diego Mojo coach Tayyiba Haneef-Park, a former Olympic volleyball player, spoke on the power of professional women's sports leagues after the team's home game last weekend.

"There is power in our voice. There is power in who we are. There is power in the way that we play. So, we get to be an avenue and be something that's possible for young girls to aspire to. If you make space for us, we are going to triumph in that space and we are going to make it even better."

Why it matters: As we celebrate International Women's Day, it's important to recognize the impact of the growth and investment in professional women's sports.
