Successful conference 'a history of women's football'.

13 February 2019 18:00

A conference on the history of women footballers will be held on Thursday 13 February at 6pm in building 4E on the Bourget-du-Lac campus.

About the Conference

In 1919, the first French women's football championship was held, with a few dozen players. One hundred years later, in 2019, France will host the Women's World Cup, broadcast to millions of viewers around the world. A historic victory! But the referee asks for a replay. Because very often, in football as in history, the result does not reflect the face of the match. The victory is to be qualified. Is sexism really behind us? The history of women's football is an opportunity to look back at the history of the 20th century through the history of football, women, geopolitics and economics. In addition, there are personal stories. The anecdotes and emotions function as clues, keys to a poetic analysis of the problem. The performed conference plays on the pleasure of trapping our own culture with its interstices, in a deliberately feminist, queer and libertarian perspective, by Hortence BelHôte.
