Presentation of "La Nuestra" in Buenos Aires, Argentina - promoting women's football in impoverished neighbourhoods

About this Event

La Nuestra is a civil society organization that has worked since 2007 for the promotion of women’s football in impoverished neighborhoods in Buenos Aires. Its main goals are to use women’s sport as a tool to work towards gender equality and combat violence against women.

Based on the experience constructed throughout our 12 years of practice, in La Nuestra we propose a space of reflection and action, to (re)think our bonds, our territories and our bodies.

Understanding football played by women as a dissident bodily practice allows us to realize the active and transformative character of our game, questioning patriarchal oppressions and contributing towards the creation of our own language.
