    by Donna Lopiano in Forbes, January 17, 2024

    “It’s important for us to listen” to the girls and women who describe what it’s like to compete against transgender athletes with male bodies, writes Lopiano in a new op-ed in Forbes. The voices depicted in a new report by Fair Play for Women “should be received with the same respect and consideration as the voices of transgender athletes.”
