Fun and Football is for all

The UN article on the women’s day has aptly highlighted that “Women stand at the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis, as health care workers, caregivers, innovators, community organizers and as some of the most exemplary and effective national leaders in combating the pandemic. This year’s theme for the International Day, Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world, celebrates the tremendous efforts by women and girls around the world in shaping a more equal future and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.”

As we write this article the India Rush SC women’s team is getting ready to battle out their city counterparts in the Indian Women’s League Prelims. What is noteworthy in the intent of the players to stamp their authority on a game known as the men’s game. The coach does not see them as boys or girls but children wanting to indulge in enjoyable activity.

One of the actions towards a more equally world is Reject the binary, it’s simple yet fundamental towards the cause. Everyday language plays a huge role in breaking gender stereotypes and rejecting the binary of “male and female”. These little changes can go a long way toward shifting cultural perceptions of gender. 

One may argue that football, Hockey, basketball etc performance demands are better suited for the men’s, what we need to realize is that is not a men’s vs. women’s contest rather a contest between differently abled contestants. Just as Weightlifter or Boxers contest against an opponent of their weight category. We don’t compare the former world heavy weight champion Mike Tyson with Manny Pacquiao first boxer to win major world titles in four of the eight "glamour divisions"
