Their story began on a frozen pond in North Dakota. Monique Lamoureux-Morando and Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson started playing ice hockey with their four older brothers and their friends. There were no girls teams when they started, but they weren't about to let that stop them.
That trend continued over the course of their careers, facing continued barriers and unequal treatment.
Along with their teammates, Monique and Jocelyne faced their greatest test – taking on their governing body, USA Hockey, in 2017. Monique and Jocelyne helped lead the battle for more equal treatment by threatening to boycott the 2017 World Championships, putting their 2018 Olympics eligibility on the line. This effort led to a historic four-year agreement between the women players and USA Hockey that represented substantial progress for women in amateur ice hockey in the United States. Their success on and off the ice thrust them into the center of the struggle for gender equity, for women in hockey, sports, and society at large.
