Athletes are increasingly stepping into the spotlight to take on causes and use their names to highlight important issues. Olympic hero Aly Raisman added her voice to those testifying against the abusive former USA Gymnastics team doctor, and the country took notice.
Her moving testimony was a statement of power reclaimed, and senior writer Mina Kimes talks to Raisman about her feeling of responsibility to speak for those who aren’t heard.
ESPN The Magazine also features powerful portraits of “sister survivors” who came forward in “If Not for Them.” Raisman and many of the sister survivors who spoke out against Nassar’s abuse will represent all of the survivors who are being honored with the Arthur Ashe Award for Courage at The 2018 ESPYS live this evening at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
