Nancy Hogshead-Makar’s fame began as a world class swimmer at the 1984 Olympics, where she won three gold medals and one silver medal, and Sports Illustrated ranked her as Florida’s 13th greatest athlete of the 20th century, Florida’s 3rd greatest woman athlete. (Photo by Tiffany Manning)

Hogshead-Makar’s fame continues as a civil rights lawyer focusing on legal advocacy for girls and women in sports in areas that include equal play, such as traditional Title IX compliance in athletic departments, sexual harassment, abuse and assault, as well as employment, pregnancy and LGBT discrimination within sport. Sports Illustrated recently listed her as one of “The Unrelenting; the most powerful, most influential and most outstanding women in sports right now – the game-changers who are speaking out, setting the bar and making a difference.”
