The 1990s was the decade that women's sports finally received their due: in addition to the groundbreaking formation of the WNBA, the era witnessed the historic achievements of the U.S. women's national soccer team. Led by stellar players such as Mia Hamm, Brandi Chastain, Michelle Akers, and Julie Foudy, the team won the first ever Women's World Cup in 1991; a gold medal in the 1996 Olympics; and another World Cup in 1999, where the 90,000-plus crowd set a record for attendance at a women's sporting event and vaulted Chastain into sports iconography for her celebratory shirt-waving. THE WORLD AT THEIR FEET chronicles the remarkable history of the pioneering team that inspired girls and women all across America
