Steph Curry is a professional basketball who many say is the greatest shooter of all time. And he's certainly nailed it with this articulate and heart-felt piece about the values we should instill in all of our children. The entire piece deserves a wide and repeated readership, but here are just three quotes:
You’re not world class if you’re not actively about inclusion
Be yourself. Be good, and try to be great — but always be yourself
Always stay believing in women, and — when it comes to anyone’s expectations for women — always stay challenging the idea of what’s right.
As Steph says: It’s 2018 — school’s out. It’s time to go to work.

I want our girls to grow up knowing that there are no boundaries that can be placed on their futures, period. I want them to grow up in a world where their gender does not feel like a rulebook for what they should think, or be, or do. And I want them to grow up believing that they can dream big, and strive for careers where they’ll be treated fairly.
