100 Women Challenge: Fighting Sexism in Sport

“"The country of football, full of female players. They are not recognised but are real warriors."” MC Soffia, a 13 year old Brazilian rapper

In Brazil have gathered a group of influential and inspiring women (#TeamPlay) who will spend the week coming up with ideas to fight sexism in sport. The BBC have released an article highlighting this issue which makes for some heart wrenching listening and reading.

At Worcester Hockey Club, we are proud to have 4 Women's teams that consist of players aged 13 up to 40s.

Anyone and everyone should feel comfortable and confident to pick up a hockey stick, or any piece of sports equipment for that matter, regardless of their social status, sexuality, race or size.

There are some truly inspirational women in this article to listen to and read about. Everyone should always remember to support each other and remember that playing hockey (or any sport) is the goal, nothing else should matter.
