Players and Staff Welfare:
Violent Towards Women's and Girls
Over 70% of women in the UK have experienced sexual harassment (aggressive pressure) in public. But, only 4% of women reported harassment. 45% of women said they didn't believe reporting would help change anything (source: Women's Aid Sexual Harassment Report ).
Some well-known players have been charged with domestic abuse, sexual assault and rape. This has caused concern about the culture that exists in the sport. Football wants to take a stand and challenge violence against women and girls (VAWG).
VAWG is a form of discrimination. Previously, women and girls didn't receive fair or equal treatment. We call this gender-based inequality and this is how violence came to be overlooked.
