Women referees, first in South American football


THis 2014 video is about women’s football in Argentina.

The COVID-19 pandemic is terrible, killing many people and ruining the health of many others.

Still, it has some positive sides, eg, for wildlife.

It has some positive sides for women’s rights as well.

NOS radio reports today that for the first time ever, women have been admitted as referees in (male) Copa Libertadores matches, the highest level international matches for South American football clubs.

At one match, there were supposed to be four male referees. But they all tested positive for coronavirus. So, referee Mariana de Almeida stepped in.

At another match, the same problem. Daiana Milone from Argentina solved it.
