PHAIDRA KNIGHT PRESSES FOR PROGRESS: THE CONTINUED BRILLIANCE OF A HALL OF FAME INDUCTEE
On November 10, 2017, Phaidra Knight became only the third North American female to be inducted into the prestigious society that boasts 147 inductions in twelve years. One American woman and one Canadian woman have received the same accolade, Patty Jervey and Heather Moyse, respectively. Around the globe, World Rugby has honored just nine women with the Hall of Fame title since its induction process began in 2006. The World Rugby Hall of Fame Induction is a special and well-deserved honor for these nine women. Across the world, the anticipation of more female inductees is strong. Knight’s story is one that highlights the power of women within the rugby community and beyond.
