520    "The 1970s saw women coming into their own, working hard 
       to create new roles at home and in sports, culture, 
       politics, and business. It was also the start of the 
       "fitness revolution." At this unique intersection of 
       feminism and athleticism, Lisa Lindahl's game-changing 
       entrepreneurial journey began. She invented the first 
       sports bra, the "Jogbra," in 1977. It was the right 
       product at the right time, throwing Lisa into a high-
       stakes world of business and power--a world for which she 
       was not fully prepared. Unleash the Girls is the 
       improbable story of a young artist with a disability who 
       used her powers of creativity to solve a vexing problem 
       and ended up leveling the playing field for girls and 
       women across the globe--literally, unleashing the girls. 
       Her invention would become a feminist icon and the company
       she founded would change an industry. But amid the success,
       Lisa continued to search for meaning and the true nature 
       of power and beauty. This is the untold story of the 
       invention of the sports bra and how it changed the world 
       for girls and women...and, along the way, changed Lisa, 
       too."--Back cover.
