When you come to think about it, the society of today has significantly improved when it comes to gender equality, the times where “football is for boys”, and, “ballet is for girls” is no longer apparent in our day-to-day lives.
Consequently, the overall impact of women’s football on our lives today is for some reason still frowned upon, with the media and general public promoting inequality and sexism, regardless of the fact that this is a sport for everyone to love. But, when you turn to the situation as a whole, you begin to realise that women’s football is on the rise – and will continue to be so.
2012 proved to be an important stepping stone for the future of women’s football, the Football Association launched a plan to help improve the game over the next five years and make it the second most played sport in the country – only being second to men’s football. Also, the GB Women’s football team smashed TV and attendance records where they finished in a respectful quarter-finals position. They started to develop the Women’s Super League as well as make more women’s matches live on television.
