The programme, just over half-hour in length discussed Cross-Cultural Perspectives on Gender Equality in Football. Among topics discussed were the huge importance of female role models, how working with players needs to focus on support the ‘whole’ person rather than just the footballer and the lack of female coaches in the women’s game and what can be done to address that problem.
The panel went on to highlight the challenges and negativity faces faced by females in football and how the pandemic has failed to treat women’s football the same as the men’s game.
