There are claims that break a nation’s socio-political schemes and go through other activities. A good example of this is women’s football, which in recent years gained strength in pursuit of women’s struggle and became a space where in addition to goal hugs, it also began to scream for an end to gender-based violence and equality in working conditions, among other claims.

As part of International Women’s Day, many teams from different countries put their languages together in one and raised their voices for the same causes.
In Argentina, Boca, River, Racing, San Lorenzo, Huracán, are some examples among several of the clubs that joined the commemoration through videos or messages shared on social networks.
