Spanish football club Valencia wants to change this by teaming up with UN Women to expand awareness of gender equality and how men and boys can play a role in achieving a gender equal society. Players will not only have the organization's logo on their jerseys during all their games, in addition to special matches and soccer clinics that will take place over the next four years throughout Spain, the Americas and other parts of the world, but they will also design and run workshops that provide participants with techniques to conduct high quality football training with a strong focus on gender equality, preventing violence against women and girls and building self esteem and leadership through sports.
UN Women will host these pioneers in Singapore to bring their global message to the Singapore community. Research estimates suggest that if we continue on our current trajectory, gender equality will be achieved by 2095. With men and boys at the table and engaged on the issue, we believe that we can more than halve that estimate. With the support of Valencia's players as strong role models, we hope to inspire more men and boys in Singapore to join the movement to promote and support gender equality across the globe.
