    Women’s Voices in Rowing captures the female rowing experience through the stories of 14 rowers from around the world. Published in November, it is the work of Daniela Nachazelova, a native of the Czech Republic who competed at Washington State University and won medals in international championships. For each copy sold, a dollar will be donated to World Rowing and its gender-equity efforts. The book is a response to the fact that the Tokyo Games will be the most gender-balanced Olympics in history–with 48.8 percent of the participants expected to be women.
