“Contigo Jenni” and all the latest from Spain’s sexist soccer federation
Content warning: This episode contains mention of sexual assault.
The term “déjà vu” is French, but that’s the sensation Spain’s bringing to the table this week as the ongoing saga sparked by Spanish football federation president Luis Rubiales’ non-consensual public kiss of player Jenni Hermoso continues.
On today’s episode of The GIST of It, co-hosts Ellen Hyslop and Steph Rotz are breaking down the latest in this misogyny-filled situation, starting with a timeline overview of the ever-changing headlines.
Then after the break, the gals dive into support for Hermoso pouring out from across the soccer world, as well as the larger state of what women in sports (and in society!) too often contend with. Time is most definitely up.
