"Skyed by a Girl"
The purpose of this campaign is to take harmful, disheartening comments made by male youth players about women’s ultimate and use them to empower the girls in our community. We want to reclaim the phrase “skyed by a girl” to not be a source of shame for men’s players, but to celebrate women’s players. We have juxtaposed comments made by members of our own community with some of the most athletic plays by female youth players in Minnesota, because it’s far easier to show that the statements are unfounded than to say it. Ultimately, we realized that we don’t need to say anything to condemn hurtful language by male players, because if we highlight our women’s players their hard work, talent, and grit speaks for itself.

These statements do not feel uplifting at all.

The statements are not meant to be uplifting. The images with each one are what do they talking and act to show how ridiculous the quote is.
