Former Denver Health CEO Patricia Gabow, MD and winning CU Women’s Basketball Coach Ceal Barry were interviewed by Fox31 anchor Brooke Wagner about the 30th anniversary of the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame. Dr. Gabow said the Women’s Hall of Fame is needed to inspire girls and women to achieve great things in careers that don’t even exist yet. Ceal Barry said there “was definitely a ceiling” in women’s collegiate sports when she was taking her teams to Big Eight victories in the 1980s. The Hall is needed, she said, because women’s sports still do not get the attention they deserve from the media.
More than 30 inductees will attend the 30th anniversary celebration September 2 at the University of Denver from 5:30 to 9:00 p.m. View the interview at Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame on Fox31 .For more information, visit: www.cogreatwomen.org.
