These Women In Senegal Were Told To Get Married And Stay In The Kitchen — So They Did The Opposite

Worldwide, soccer is often considered a sport for men, not women.In Senegal, women are doing things differently. See how these amazing soccer (or "football," as my friends and I in England call it) players defy all the expectations of their behavior by playing the game. Women’s football is a powerful tool for promoting gender equality. Not only does it inspire girls and promote new role models, but it's empowering to the women themselves. I love these women, and I LOVE what the woman says at 2:11. What a badass.
