International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.
The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. Significant activity is witnessed worldwide as groups come together to celebrate women's achievements or rally for women's equality.
The campaign theme for International Women's Day 2021 is 'Choose To Challenge'. A challenged world is an alert world. And from challenge comes change. So let's all #ChooseToChallenge.
From the terrace to the boardroom, we brought together six voices from the football world to discuss the challenges facing women involved in the game.
On the panel:
Jane Purdon (Chief Executive, Women in Football)
Sanjay Bhandari (Chair, Kick It Out)
Monique Choudhuri (Board Member of Brentford FC and Women in Football)
Lorna Falconer (Head of Football Operations, Brentford FC)
Lungi Macebo (Chief Operating Officer, Birmingham City FC and Director of Women in Football)
Chris Paouros (Kick It Out Trustee, FA Inclusion Advisory Board Member, Proud Lillywhites Fan Group Co-Chair)
