No, we won’t go back to the kitchen sink
Or sit quietly in the background,
We won’t just be here to have babies,
We’ll be here to be inspirations
To all the little girls who dream of more
Of a world where the unimaginable is in store.
Wow, England just won the Euros, the first time any England team – male or female – in almost 60 years. And what a feeling to watch the girls bringing it home for us.
Women’s football in this country has been a bit of a joke until very recently, nobody took it seriously and it didn’t get the attention that it deserved. I don’t know whether it’s social media that has helped this squad connect with everyone, but something special has happened this summer and the country has just got on board with these women.
The commentators were saying that fifteen years ago the women’s game was begging stadiums to let them stage Euros matches and nobody would take the risk. And now they are selling out Wenbley Stadium.
The little girls that are watching this now are going to be entering a world where they aren’t laughed at because they want to play football, and one day they may even get paid the same as men.
Well done to those ladies, they have paved the way for so many and it’s made me feel really proud.
