On Sunday at our Scottish Women’s Premier League fixture versus Motherwell and ahead of International Women's Day today, Glasgow City FC and Glasgow City Foundation proudly teamed up with the Zero Tolerance, a Scottish charity working to end violence against women and girls.
Aiming to tackle gender inequality and helping to raise awareness of this real issue within our society, Glasgow City proudly wore the Zero Tolerance logo on our first team kits as well as holding up cards before the match.
Chief Executive Laura Montgomery said,
“International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. It also marks a call to action for tackling gender inequality and one of these important areas is highlighting the unacceptability of violence against women and girls. It is vital to us as a club and also our Foundation as a charity to do everything we can to make a difference in this area and indeed all areas which adversely affect gender parity.
"Violence against women and girls has absolutely no place in our society on and off the pitch. There is so much work to do in this area, but we hope campaigns like this can make a positive difference and act as a real catalyst for change."
