On November 29, 2018, Stephen Curry posted a handwritten note on his Twitter in response to a letter he received from 9-year-old California native, Riley Morrison. In Morrison’s letter, she addresses her concern that Curry’s endorsed basketball sneakers, the Curry 5’s, were not available for girls when she looked on Under Armour’s website.

“They did have them for sale under the boy’s section, even to customize,” Morrison added.

She asked Curry to work with Under Armour so girls can also wear the Curry 5’s.

In Curry’s response that he posted on his Twitter, he explained how the smaller sizes were labeled as “boys” on the Under Armour website. Curry said he will send her a pair of Curry 5’s and Riley would be among the first to receive a pair of the new Curry 6’s. Not only that, he also invited her to join him in Oakland on March 8 for International Women’s Day. On George Resch’s “feel-good” news Instagram account, @tanksgoodnews, he posted a picture of Curry and Morrison from March 8 in the new Curry 6’s that she helped design.

On March 8, the Warriors partook in International Women’s Day when they posted a picture of Curry on their Twitter, @WarriorsGaming, with a quote from him.

“I want our girls to grow up knowing that there are no boundaries that can be placed on their futures, period,” Curry said.

The celebration of International Women’s Day stretches far beyond just one day for the Warriors. In the NBA’s article about the Warriors’ participation and support of women’s empowerment, they mention Chiquita Evans, the first woman to be drafted in the NBA 2K League thanks to the Warriors Gaming Squad. Attached in the article is another tweet from the Warriors’ Twitter, posted on March 8, with a video of Chiquita Evans telling the viewers how it feels to be the first woman to be drafted in the league. Not only is Stephen Curry a proud participant in celebrating women’s empowerment during Women’s History Month, but so is the entire Warriors team.
