England Women pen open letter to government

England Women have penned an open letter to the government calling for girls to be allowed to play football at schools. All 23 members of the Euro 2022 winners signed the letter to Conservative Party leadership Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss. They pointed out that just 63 percent of girls are allowed to play football in schools and have urged the Government to allow girls to have access to at least two hours a week.

“On Sunday evening history was made. The dreams of 23 women came true. England became European Champions for the first time in history. Throughout the Euros, we as a team spoke about our legacy and goal to inspire a nation. Many will think that this has already been achieved, but we see this as only the beginning,” England Women penned a letter to the government. “We are looking to the future. We want to create real change in this country and we are asking you, if you were to become Prime Minister on 5 September, to help us achieve that change.”

“This is something that we all experienced growing up. We were often stopped from playing, so we made our own teams, we traveled across the country and despite the odds, we just kept playing football,” the letter added. “Women’s football has come a long way. But it still has a long way to go.”

Sunak responded by committing to an immediate review of women’s football if made Prime Minister and says he will also ask Ofsted “to inspect sport in schools as part of every inspection”.
