This week on "A Woman's Job," Jen Welter shows us her love for the game of football. In 2014, she signed with the Texas Revolution arena football team and became the first woman to play a contact position in a male-dominated sport. The next year, the Arizona Cardinals brought her on as an assistant coach, making her the first woman to coach in the NFL. Now, she teaches other women how to play and coach the sport they love.

Hosted by Noor Tagouri, "A Woman's Job" is a six-part original series focused on women who are paving their own way in industries dominated by men. New episodes are available each Wednesday morning anywhere you watch Newsy.

Original theme by Mike Shinoda.
