This upbeat presentation hosted by the Wellesley Centers for Women (WCW) at Wellesley College will explore the fascinating experience of NCAA Women's Basketball in the midst of March Madness...including aspects such as predictability, logic, policy, analysis, history, and significant milestones.

Laura Pappano, inaugural writer-in-residence at WCW and an experienced journalist who has written extensively about gender equity issues in sports
