Max Rushden is joined by Barry Glendenning, Ally Simcock, Suzanne Wrack and listener Sarah to discuss the experiences of women at football matches.

This episode was sparked by a listener getting in touch regarding our coverage of Cristiano Ronaldo – suggesting we should cover more broadly the experiences of women who attend football matches.

The recent Women At The Match report carried out by the FSA revealed that one in five women have reported unwanted physical attention while attending men’s football matches, we hear from FSA board member Ally Simcock and Guardian football writer Suzanne Wrack about their experiences, whether things have changed and what we can do in future to make the match-going experience safe and enjoyable for women.
