July 30th, 2021: Marta!!!

Against the prevailing winds of institutionalized sexism and blatant disregard by her own futbol federation, Marta has blazed a trail to become one of the greatest female footballers ever. So the LMC speaks with Brenda Elsey to discuss the challenges Marta and her compatriots face in getting respect for the women’s game. Elsey is a co-host for the Burn It All Down podcast and the author of, “Futbolera: A History of Women and Sports in Latin America.”
