Take a look at the brilliant work Whittington FC are doing in the grassroots game.
International Women's Day with Whittington FC
International Women's Day (IWD) provides a useful opportunity to reinforce the fact that everyone has a role to play in forging a more gender-balanced world. IWD is for celebrating the achievements of women and/or calling for gender parity.
In the late 1800's and early 1900's, women activists fought hard for equality. The focus was largely on securing the right to vote and equal pay for equal work. These two issues - women's voice and participation in government; and the gender pay gap - largely remain key priorities well over a century later.
Fast-forward to the 1970's and widespread feminist action saw women rallying, protesting and lobbying hard for inclusion, influence and equality. Feminists faced many challenges - systemic and societal - not only from opposing men, but also from other women.
We wanted to celebrate the brilliant work that one of our Staffordshire clubs, Whittington FC, are doing in the grassroots game to actively encourage more females to take part in the sport, on and off the field.
