EXPERT SESSIONS AND ADVICE FROM QUALIFIED AND EXPERIENCED GRASSROOTS RUGBY COACHES

Breaking the Pane discusses women in sport, sexism and social media abuse

This week in the first-ever Breaking The Pane podcast Jess Bunyard is joined by Lichfield Ladies Head Coach Maria Crowfoot and UK Coaching’s Coach Developer Jenny Coady.

The team discuss the recent BBC Sport survey into the social media abuse and sexism experienced by elite British sportswomen. One striking result to emerge from the survey was that 65% of the athletes had suffered from sexism but only 10% felt comfortable enough to report it.

The team also share some of their own personal horror stories and discuss how the sports community can make progress into an accepting and diverse landscape.
