Women In Football

Tweeters talk about football more than anything else on Twitter. In 2019, women's football fans turn their attention from the Women's Super League to the Parc des Princes for the Women's world cup, and equality in sport became one of the biggest talking points. 

To spotlight the biggest female voices in the world of Football Twitter, we partnered with the organisation Women In Football to tell six short stories.
