A mother and daughter athlete duo are fighting back against biological males in women’s sports in Hawaii, a new mini-documentary shows.
The Independent Women’s Forum (IWF) released a mini-documentary Tuesday examining the story of Cynthia Monteleone and her daughter Margaret Oneal Monteleone, two track runners in Hawaii who are now “fighting for fairness in women’s athletics.”
“It is important in this time to encourage others to speak up for equality for women and girls, because there is a narrative being pushed that girls are just hormones,” World Masters track athlete Cynthia Monteleone told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “We are not just hormones. Changes begin in the embryo that make us different and therefore we deserve an equal opportunity based on sex not gender identity.”
“Cynthia and Margaret are courageous for speaking out on this issue,” senior policy analyst at IWF Kelsey Bolar said in a statement. “It is fundamentally unfair that female athletes are being forced to compete against biological men who have biological athletic advantages. Women everywhere who claim to support other women should acknowledge the unfairness of the situation and work together towards a more equitable solution.”
