Joan Ryan & Jamie Dantzscher - Little Girls in Pretty Boxes

From starvation diets and debilitating injuries to the brutal tactics of tyrannical gymnastics guru Bela Karolyi, “Little Girls in Pretty Boxes” portrays the horrors endured by girls at the hands of their coaches and sometimes their own families.

Little Girls in Pretty Boxes is an acclaimed expose that has already helped reform Olympic sports — now updated to reflect the latest developments in women’s gymnastics and figure skating — it continues to plead for sanity, safety, and an end to our national obsession: winning at any cost.

Author Joan Ryan is joined by gymnast Jamie Annette Dantzscher to discuss the book and the issues.

 

Joan Ryan is an award-winning journalist and the author of four books. She was a pioneer in sports journalism as one of the first female sports columnists in the country.

Jamie Annette Dantzscher is an American former artistic gymnast. She was a member of the bronze-medal-winning American team at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney.
