Women's football has always been political (small p).
100 years ago, the very act of playing football challenged the social norms, so much so that the then FA banned the women's game in 1921 (until 1971).
100 years ago, women's matches raised funds for good causes, be that returning soldiers, women's organisations or striking miners' families, the act that was probably the last straw for the authorities.
So we see our #EqualityFC campaign for gender equality in football in that long tradition: Using football as an engine for social change. We are now joining up with like-minded organisations that support women in society. Lewes FC is offering a place to come together (with free match tickets for member groups) and subsidising the cost of becoming an individual owner of the club, to support the work we are doing. And SisterShips are finding that a women's football match is a great place to meet up, network and just relax and have some fun.
