Venus Sports is a progressive sports platform dedicated exclusively to women’s professional sports and the women who do what it takes to change the game. We are a journalistic home for thought-provoking, empowering, and entertaining coverage of the WNBA, NWSL, and NWHL, as well as the broader women’s sports landscape.

Founded in 2016 as Sports Are From Venus, the mission at Venus Sports is to change the way sports journalism represents professional athletes outside of the men’s game.

It’s herstory in the making. We’re here for it.
