“Unity for Equity” Designed by Monica Ahanonu and Curated by Johnnie Walker 

On July 2nd, Angel City FC and Gotham FC will take to the field sporting custom warmup jerseys designed by Monica Ahanonu, curated by Johnnie Walker. Representing a one team approach towards achieving gender equality, Monica Ahanonu’s illustration depicts how “we lift each other up as we rise and break through barriers.”

The teams and Johnnie Walker are working to create a more equitable world by increasing visibility of women’s sports, not just this summer, but all year round.

Join our mission by purchasing a limited edition top. A portion of the proceeds will support the Women's Sports Foundation and their mission to enable women to reach their potential in sports and life through financial support, groundbreaking research, education, and advocacy. 


A statement from Monica Ahanonu:

“In this design, I chose to focus specifically on the hands of the players we are representing. Hands can convey a wide range of emotions, and I wanted to capture the feelings of celebration, camaraderie, teamwork, strength, and unity in a single glance. The lines surrounding the hands represent the dynamic exchange of emotions and energy between a crowd of people experiencing the same event. 

By depicting hands grasping one another, I sought to illustrate how we lift each other up as we rise and break through barriers. As a team, we often celebrate not only our personal victories but also the triumphs of our teammates and the collective success of our group.”
