Crystal Dunn is a soccer player for the U.S. Women's National Team and Portland Thorns FC of the National Women's Soccer League (NWSL), the highest division of women's professional soccer in the United States.

Dunn played collegiate soccer with the North Carolina Tar Heels from 2010 to 2013. She was a member of the team that won the 2012 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup in Japan and was the recipient of 2012 Hermann Trophy.

Following her collegiate career, Dunn was selected first overall by the Washington Spirit in the 2014 NWSL College Draft that took place on January 17, 2014. In 2015, she won the NWSL Most Valuable Player and the Golden Boot awards, becoming the youngest player to win both awards, at age 23.

Dunn founded the NWSL's Black Women's Player Collective in 2020 to create a space for all the Black women in the NWSL to vent and speak on things that they’ve experienced. Their initiatives include voter education and highlighting the pay disparities between women and men's soccer.
