Here's a quick interview with one of the women that was integral in bringing women's weightlifting to the national and international stage.

What always shocks me about the history of women in sports is how long it actually took. I should probably have a better grasp on it, but when you hear that women's weightlifting wasn't added to the Olympics until 2000, it just seems crazy.

Luckily, there are women like Judy Glenney who push us forward and work towards bringing equality to the sport. 

As most of you know, I think it's important to know the history of whatever you are involved in so you can learn from past mistakes, honor those that came before you, and help push forward.
