From the 7th to the 13th of October the team of PRAXIS participated in the campaign of FARE – football against racism.
Sadly people are still discriminated because of their skin colour, sexual orientation or gender nowadays. Especially women are disadvantaged in sport all over the world. The discrimination of women in football was one of the topics we have discussed about in our daily broadcast during the FARE campaign. Our research for this broadcast was shocking as we found
many examples of oppression of women in football. One of them is the salary gap, the reason why the female football players of the USA went to court. While a male player receives 2000 $ after a lost match, a female player receives not a single dollar. If a game has been won, a male player
receives more than 17,000 $ while a female player receives only 1,500$ in the US. This injustice made the female national team go to court. They were protesting for their future as
athletes and their right to be treated equally as their male colleges. Suprisingly the court did not agree with the demand of the women for equality. According o the US
court women are weaker by nature. They are not able to bring the same results and therefore also not worth the same salary.
Our aim in the campaign of FARE was to show that everybody is worth equal in sport. We want to fight against injustice and prejudices like these.
