On Sunday 9 September, the a team of Workers’ Liberty and Women’s Fightback activists team took part in Feminist Fightback’s “Left Foot Forward” tournament of left groups and campaigns — and won!
Thanks to Feminist Fightback’s organisation the all-women and mixed-gender teams took part in a relaxed and friendly competition.
In future tournaments, the we’d like to make more effort to get an all-women team together. Working towards that “goal” we’d like to encourage women to get involved in Feminist Fightback’s Sunday morning football training in Victoria Park every Sunday. For all levels of fitness and experience. Complete beginners welcome. More details here.
The idea is to challenge women’s increasing alienation from our bodies by using the football pitch as a place to gain physical confidence, work as a team, acquire new skills and have fun.
We also have an upcoming article from team member Hannah Thompson on women and sport – keep reading the blog to see it soon.
