What is the Women's World Cup?

Gina Shaw (Author), Ted Hammond (Illustrator)
"The first international women's soccer match was in 1881, but the Women's World Cup didn't become official until 1991--110 years later! Read about the courageous, soccer-loving women who worked hard to have a World Cup of their own in this addition to the Who HQ series. Young readers will learn about the history of women's soccer, star players, and iconic wins! From Team USA's record-breaking four championships to Japan's inspiring win in 2011, this book is full of heartwarming and exciting stories about incredible athletes across decades!"-- Provided by publisher
