Fair field fight - a bit of progress for women's soccer lawsuit

Lori Hanemann

The international list of women soccer players who are in a lawsuit against the use of artificial turf at this summer's World Cup, heard good news from the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario regarding their lawsuit. They are allowed to make an addition to their suit to add in allegations of reprisals against the players behind the claim. This comes after the many reports of retaliation against women who have signed onto the lawsuit, with threats of not letting them play in the World Cup. 

Meanwhile, FIFA Secretary-General Jerome Valcke refused an offer to meet with USA's Abby Wambach and Brazil star Marta while they were in Brazil at the same time, to have discussions regarding the lawsuit. Valcke is the guy who declared the demand for grass at the World Cup "nonsense" - yup, he actually referred to this as nonsense. I still don't understand why FIFA isn't using this important World Cup issue as a chance for some positive press, since they have been getting a lot of attention for scandal and sexism. It's easy - give 'em grass!
