If you’re a woman who loves sports, or a woman who plays sports, or someone who is interested in women in sports, or sports history generally, or if you just love a good documentary…

You should check out the ESPN mini-series, Nine for IX! A new hour-long documentary airs every Tuesday at 8pm for the rest of the summer on ESPN.

They’ve already aired three segments, and they are available on iTunes - you can get a season pass for $9.99, which guarantees you access to all episodes as they air, as well as bonus content!
