Although the Global Goals World Cup is an all women's tournament, we have always strived to enlist the support of men who have the will and power to help us amplify the message. One particular type of man has proven to be a particularly strong asset: Fathers of daughters! There is something about knowing, that unless you do something, your girl will grow up in a world where there are still laws and practices which will discriminate and limit her, purely based on her sex. -something, that just pushes a man from: "sure, I support gender equality -in theory" into full blown action. The "I am no longer accepting the things I cannot change -I am changing the things I cannot accept!" kind of action. The He for She kind of action!

Our two star referees and Global Goals World Cup ambassadors Victor Ochen and Nikolaj Coster- Waldau are prime examples of fathers stepping up for their daughters. May many more follow!
Watch Nikolaj Coster-Waldau explain why he supports gender equality here.
