Football & Feminism -
SWFCWSG team up with MIN
The game of football, often viewed as a microcosm of society, has seen the rise of feminism's influence, leading to a powerful transformation in attitudes, opportunities, and perceptions. As the new football season begins, so too does a new and exciting partnership between Mums In Need (MIN) and SWFC Women’s Supporters Group (SWFCWSG).
Recognising the under-representation of women in football, Sheffield Wednesday Football Club Women's Supporters Group fosters inclusivity and gender diversity among fans. Confronting the lingering presence of misogyny and hate in football, SWFCWSG creates a safe space, open to everyone, where female fans are free to engage, and celebrate the sport they love.
Football has a unique position as a platform that reaches millions. Clubs can use their influence to send powerful messages that emphasize the importance of treating everyone with dignity both on and off the pitch. Envisioning the future involves football and feminism progressing hand in hand, urging ongoing efforts to bridge gaps, ensure equal opportunities and nurture a culture of respect and support for all, irrespective of gender. If you would like to donate to help us promote equality and non-violence then please get involved in some of our initiatives such as £2023 for 2023 fundraiser or the MIN 100 Club, and don't forget to follow SWFCWSG on social media.
