Breanna Stewart opens up about “Me Too” moment, Geno’s encouragement

Sports

Former UConn star Breanna Stewart got her second WNBA All-Star nod this week. She’s found herself as a champion for the #MeToo Movement.

Back in October, Stewart penned a personal essay for the Player’s Tribune in which she admitted she was molested as a child, starting at the age of 9. 

Geno Auriemma was one of few people close to her that she choose to share the story with prior to its publication.

Stewart says Auriemma gave her words of encouragement before the article was published.
