Feminist football in London!
Laura // 10 October 2010
This sounds great:
Feminist Fightback FC is a football team open to all self-defining women of all sporting abilities and all ages. Our team members include beginners working through their PE lesson traumas and experienced players who want to improve their skills. We are coached by two members of our collective who combine radical pedagogy with extensive experience of competitive football. We want 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 laugh a lot.
We meet every Sunday in Victoria Park, London (by the Approach Road Entrance) 11am-12.30pm. We combine skills training with a 5 aside match and will soon be competing with other teams.
