The Venezuelan Women’s Under-17 team overcame one of the worst social and economic environments for sports development and gender discrimination to become the undefeated champions of South America. Now they have their sights set on winning the first World Cup for their country and hope to give women’s soccer a voice not only in their own country but perhaps in all of South America.
