Electric Literature Named Melissa Ludtke’s “Locker Room Talk” an Inspiring Book About Women in Sports Who Defied Expectations

“Shut out of the locker rooms, young Wellesley grad and Sports Illustrated reporter Melissa Ludtke was constantly missing the quotes that she needed to get the story. Locker Room Talk is the gripping first-hand report of how she took on Major League Baseball and with a ruling by Judge Constance Baker Motley, the nation’s first Black woman on the federal bench, changed the future of sports journalism for women.” –Aime Alley Card
