The shirts of Glasgow City players will carry the name of Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the left sleeve for this coming season, in honour of the US Supreme Court Justice who sadly passed away a few days ago.
One of the biggest champions of gender equality Ginsburg led the legal battle for women’s rights and was formidable. Her work in the 1970’s changed the way the world is for American women challenging and overcoming laws which discriminated on the basis of sex.
Commenting, Glasgow City Club Manager, Laura Montgomery said, “Ruth Bader Ginsburg is one of the finest legal minds we have known and her own story is remarkable. A pioneer, feminist icon and role model, her work, rulings and dissenting opinions have paved the way for justice, equality and civil liberties. Our club is all about championing women and girls and trying to ensure every female has the opportunity she needs and deserves to succeed, in whatever that may be. We champion change and we champion equality. RBG certainly gave all of us hope of an empowered future and we want to be able to honour her in this simple way this coming season.”
The new look Glasgow City home and away kits will be revealed before the new season kicks off on October 18th.
