Instituto Universitário da Maia

12-22 October, Maia

The Portuguese university is organising three workshops of 3hrs each on Football and Gender, between 12 and 22 October, as part of the Football People weeks.

The initiative aims to help deconstruct stereotypes and perceived cultural ideas that discriminate and prevent Roma women and girls from participating in sport, and football in particular.

Each workshop will be constituted of three facilitators focusing mainly on addressing the Roma community and associations that work with Roma people in the metropolitan area of Porto.
