Saudi women campaign for recognition of right to play soccer

Saudi women campaign for recognition of right to play soccer | Ethics in Sports | Scoop.it

Two Saudi women have established a women’s soccer and basketball team in the port city of Jeddah in a bid to persuade the government to allow and support women’s right to engage in competitive sports in a country that officially bans women from competitive sports. In a rare airing of debate on the issue, soccer team captain Rima Abdallah and basketball player Hadir Sadqa appeared on a Saudi television sports program risking a confrontation with authorities that severely curtail women’s rights, according to a transcript of the program released by Washington-based Middle East Research Institute (MEMRI).Their battle highlights the soccer pitch as a battlefield for women’s rights across the Middle East and North Africa, a part of the world where resistance to gender equality and women’s exertions in sports is deeply rooted. Women soccer players confront the toughest obstacles in Saudi Arabia, ruled by one of Islam’s most puritanical sects. Physical education classes are banned in state-run Saudi girl’s schools and female athletes are not allowed to participate in the Olympics. Women's games and marathons are often cancelled when the clergy gets wind of them. Some clerics condemn women’s sports as corrupting and satanic and charge that it spreads decadence. They warn that running and jumping can damage a woman's hymen and ruin her chances of getting married. In defiance, women have quietly been established soccer and other sports teams with the backing of more liberal members of the ruling Al Saud family as extensions of hospitals and health clubs. The International Olympic Committee has threatened Saudi Arabia with suspension if it does not create frameworks for women’s sports. Ms. Abdallah suggested that the team’s prospects were limited not only because of government and conservative resistance to the notion of women’s sports but also because of lack of support by world soccer body FIFA. She said FIFA’s failure to recognize the women’s team had reinforced a decision by the Saudi football association to ban them from participating in a women’s soccer tournament last year in neighbouring Bahrain.

in the Saudi Arabian city of Jeddah, two women have organized a female soccer and basketball team in hopes that their government will change the law that bans women from playing competitive sports. this is an example of gender inequality. we learned about how women are treated as second class citizens in many of these middle eastern countries. we learned this when we watched the movie "Wadjda".

Introducing the third culprit of PEDs... the fans and sponsors who pay for everything. This Dr. explains how it can happen and a third perspective that maybe cheating is universal and to win fairly an athlete would have to be a saint.

This is a lengthy article entry, but it is honest!  I do admire the truthfulness, as well as the broad topics that they cover.  It is more of an opinionated posting, but it is real.

Sara M Hall's curator insight, November 10, 2014 7:57 PM

In his article, Coach Long brings up many good points on how ethics should be in youth sports. In his article he doesn't go to say winning is bad, but the way winning is glorified and taught is wrong. Long also points out how playing a game with no score does not make sense either, playing and teaching youth sports is a way to find a balance between winning, having fun, and teaching young athletes about sports in a healthy way. Allowing students to grow and learn life lessons through sports, and most importantly allowing them to learn to have fun. I really think Long did a fantastic job at helping coaches of young athletes get back to the basic ethics and good morals of what youth sports should be about.

Jayme Dannen-Deal's curator insight, April 16, 2015 11:01 PM

This is a great article - as coaches we need to remember that we are role models and there are so many more important things that just winning. 

Christopher Baldwin's curator insight, June 12, 2015 11:53 AM

The following article explains the importance of understanding ethics in youth sports. This article also explains trends among youth sports today such as "winning at all costs" and the importance of sportsmanship.
