San Miguel launches Fair Play campaign
Under the motto “Open the game, practice equality”, San Miguel de Abona has designed a new campaign that aims to fight against sexism in sport.
This municipal initiative aims to end “shameful expressions and actions” and the use of sexist phrases.
“With this proposal, we want to eradicate from our sports venues phrases like running like a girl, this sport is for women or fight like a man,” said Samuel de León, councillor for equality.
The campaign is being supported by leading San Miguel athletes such as Jonay Risco, Kathaysa Delgado, Gloria González, Yoana Alonso, Susana Garabatos, Jancy Dorta, David Martín and Cristo Hernández.
The campaign will focus on everyone being an athlete, regardless of their sex which is totally irrelevant as sport is for all.
