This resource, suitable for use with learners aged 11-16, gives young people the opportunity to analyse how the sport of women’s football and the women who participate in it have been portrayed in a range of films across the years, before planning and producing a creative response to the topic.

The resource considers female football players and attitudes towards women in sport more generally.

Learners will be given the opportunity to access archive, feature length and documentary film footage to discuss what football has looked like for girls and women over time from as far back as 1920.
