Millwall Football Club and Millwall Community Trust are pleased to announce a partnership with HerGameToo, an initiative aimed at combatting sexism in football.
The Lions join a number of clubs from the EFL and beyond to commit to the cause, creating further awareness to the problems faced in football by females.
HerGameToo was founded by 12 passionate female football fans who are committed to growing the campaign with the aim of fostering an ethos in football in which women are welcomed and respected equally.
The non-profit organisation aims to create awareness, educate, research, develop a strong sense of community and create strong relationships with clubs, among much more.
Further aims include creating regular content to champion women in football (players, staff and fans), creating strong relationships with club trusts and communities, having a presence at football grounds and sports bars to build a more welcoming environment for young girls and women as well as continuing to campaign against sexism in football and online abuse.
“It’s brilliant to partner up with Millwall," said Caz May, co-founder of HerGameToo. "They are a club who do so much for equality in the community already so they match the values of HerGameToo perfectly.
"Discrimination has no place in football and we can’t thank Millwall enough for backing our movement and for helping us to stamp sexism out of the game."
"We are delighted to be joining forces with HerGameToo," said Jason Vincent, chairman of Millwall's Equality Steering Committee. "The game of football evokes many emotions amongst us all and whether inside stadiums or online, people of all ages, genders and backgrounds should be able to enjoy themselves equally in a safe environment.
"The club and the Trust look forward to working alongside those who have already elevated the organisation to the level it is at today and will strive to raise awareness of an extremely worthy cause."
