The F Word Interviews Angela James and Author Corey Long

Angela James: The First Superstar of Women's HockeyThe F Word, a feminist media collective based out of Vancouver, B.C., recently interviewed Angela James and co-author Corey Long about the new biography Angela James: The First Superstar of Women’s Hockey.

Host Ellie Gordon-Moershel talks to Angela about how co-authors Corey Long and Tom Bartsiokas approached her with the idea of chronicling her life story. From fighting for the right to play on boys teams in her youth, to the first ever IHF sanctioned women’s hockey tournament in 1990, the biography chronicles ground-breaking moments in Angela’s career and women’s professional sports.

Angela and Corey also dissect some standout quotes from the book and talk about the current state of media coverage for women’s sports today. Women’s hockey still isn’t cataloged the same way the NHL is, or during world championships in general. These “spurts of coverage” miss a lot of key moments in women’s sports and skip over players that deserve media exposure. Angela James: The First Superstar of Women’s Hockey, proves just how rich and exciting all levels of women’s competition can be.
