Abstract

Around the world, sport activism has proven an effective strategy for calling attention to inequalities, including sexism, racism and homophobia. In Ghana, where women’s footballers are sometimes identified as lesbians, and consequently harassed, collective organising through the sport can help call attention to homophobia and sexism in the broader culture. Alongside feminist and LGBTQI groups, this activism has the potential to recruit a broader coalition (football fans) into the liberation project.
