HerGameToo was founded in May 2021. It is a voluntary organisation run by female football fans who are committed to growing the campaign with the aim of fostering an ethos in football in which woman are welcomed and respected equally.
The organisation fights to stop sexism in football (and in other sports). If you want to find out more about the organisation, check out their website hergametoo.co.uk/football
Forest Green have recently appointed a new HerGameToo ambassador, Debbie Stopford. The Supporters Club met with Debbie last month and we are pleased to have formed an informal partnership with Debbie and the organisation.
HerGameToo aims to call out comments we may all have heard – ‘you know nothing about football – you’re a woman’, ‘do you even know the offside rule?’, ‘you know a lot about football for a girl’, ‘you can’t really comment – it’s a mans game’, ‘he’s playing like a girl’. The organisation wants women and girls of all ages to feel confident and safe sharing their opinion about football both online and in real life without fear of sexist abuse.
