Women United FC is a soccer media community that started out as a supporters club and platform for women to openly discuss soccer. Over time we’ve grown into a media voice. Our strength lies within a community that has been simmering for years, a national community of women and men who believe in the power of soccer to enhance people’s lives.
We are a passionate group of women in media who will not only bring you game recaps and player interviews, but share stories of courageous women, athletes, mothers, daughters, coaches and students. We love the men of the game too and with reason – they’ve been some of the biggest supporters of us since the beginning! We’re about breaking barriers, open dialogue, honest insights and a positive spin on the game that joins us together.
Marisa SchlenkerFirst and foremost, I love playing. I love the feel of playing the ball, connecting with a teammate, making a good play… In covering football, I am interested in investigating who is playing the game and learning how the game is becoming more inclusive.
Emerald PainterI started playing around the age of 9. I have participated in club teams, 6th & 7th grade school team and all throughout high school at Englewood in Jacksonville, Florida. I was a four-year player and captain my senior year of high school. I have played every position but being forward was my favorite position. There is nothing like the feeling of scoring a goal for your team.
Carrie RapaportI’ve loved soccer since I was a little girl in Pennsylvania. I started playing in 4th grade, and was a huge fan of the Pittsburgh Spirit MISL team. Now, I live in LA, and you can find me playing MLS Fantasy, snarking at LA Galaxy games, taking in the culture of my city, and appreciating the heart and grit that each player brings to the field.
