TAKE A SEAT, TAKE A STAND
The world's first seated march
The women's movement is on the rise, yet women are still sidelined in sports. This shows on the empty seats at the WNBA games. This season, the league calls all voices currently supporting women into the arena. By showing up to the game, you'll be doing more than supporting women in sports. You'll be standing up for women everywhere.
How to take a stand: arena division
The arena is divided into sections, each assigned to a partner organisation. When you take a seat, you'll be standing for a cause of your choosing and the WNBA will donate a portion of your ticket towards it.
