So, England Ladies are now through to the Euro Championships Final and brilliant to watch and shows how far women in sport has changed. It is no longer a “Mans Game” as women can play the same sports too and we saw that this evening as I write this blog.
I did reading in my English lesson at Secondary School about Women in Football and how in a football magazine that they put Karen Brady against a Managing Director of I think it was Blackpool FC, was a female and put them against each other, because they were both women. I remember having an argument with my school friends who said the women’s football would never be big because of the men’s football is different and never would be the same, and who now has had the last laugh? Sorry, but reminding myself of this gets my blood still boiling. Yes of course they have proven that they are just as good and even better, because they being ladies have had to prove themselves more.
It is so good that they are on the TV and on a main channel on the TV and being taken seriously. It is not about agenda but capabilities and that is exactly what women in sport have proven. I like the fact now that in Athletics they have mixed relays, so men and women together and in Tennis they have had mixed doubles for years, so they can play sports together.
Yes men are biologically stronger but doesn’t mean women can’t compete, of course they can.
Life is not about agendas as I have noticed that there a female bus drivers and before this was male dominated, and the same for the emergency services.
I am glad that they get to the play the Ladies Euro Championship Final at Wembley as it is about time, they do and done for years now, have the Women’s FA Cup Final at Wembley so I feel so revved up by it. I for a while would say it isn’t the same watching women’s football when I’d daydream of being a footballer myself , but yes it is and loved watching the Women’s World cup and so happy that we are no longer seen as housewives, and seen to the world to have babies when were are on this planet to live and live beyond our means, just like men.
So you ladies of sport hope that we (England FC) can win and going to be making sure I can watch the final for the Ladies European Championship Final and being praying that the trophy is ours.
Many thanks for reading,
Typical London Gal.
