Do you fear retribution? Did you ever worry about being so outspoken?
Some [people] say there's a way to go about things, which is certainly true, but at the end of the day, the fact remains that there are gross inequities and women need to have the courage to speak out on those things.
I'm not afraid because I got to a certain point in my career that I want to align myself with people that share my values. I'm thankful that Glenn Taylor, our ownership, he has created an environment where he has empowered our players and women in the community. And if it wasn't that way, if Glenn says 'Cheryl, I don't want you to use your platform the way you're using it,’ I would go somewhere else. I probably wouldn't have done that 20 years ago.
Some of it is you get older, and you go, ‘I don't care what people think.’ And that's a beautiful place to be, when you just don't care what people think and you get to be yourself. I am so fortunate that I get to live that life. I get to be myself and be open about my beliefs and to share and to lead in the way that I want to lead. It's a beautiful thing. Not everybody has that. I'm so thankful and appreciative of what I have here. I'm very, very lucky.
