Kuronya taking on USA Boxing -- in courtroom

Remember this story? Kuronya, the 2006 captain of the Elite USA Women's Boxing Team, filed suit March 1 in US District Court in Portland against US Amateur Boxing, charging gender discrimination and civil rights violations. There's been some movement already, even before a judgment: USA Boxing's website announced recently that "female boxers will be extended the same travel stipends as the males who qualify to attend the tournament."

The Boston Globe covered it nicely. I mention it not only because they did a good job, but because it's nice to see the story getting such high-profile exposure.

Here's a link to a video piece on the story by Globe Newspaper Co. I just love this new video journalism genre.
