807: Brentford Director Discusses Sexism in Football with #HerGameToo - Beesotted Podcast Special Part 2
A recent Football Supporters Association survey revealed that one in five women suffer unwanted physical attention at football matches. Nearly half the women surveyed were told they knew a lot about football ‘for a woman’. And the survey noted that less than one in twenty women would accept sexism as part of the matchday experience as opposed to over twice as many six years ago.

Plus Sally Stephens - Brentford’s Fan and Community Engagement Director - sheds some light on how Brentford have been tackling diversity - creating an environment to make women feel more comfortable at games.
