Abodi: “All-female referee team in A step towards the affirmation of equal opportunities”

(ANSA) – ROME, APRIL 26 – “The decision of the CAN designer Gianluca Rocchi to make up the all-female refereeing team that will make its debut in Serie A in the Inter-Turin match next Sunday represents an extremely positive signal from the point of cultural and social point of view, another step forward towards the affirmation of equal opportunities”. The minister for sport and youth, Andrea Abodi, said this in a note. “We shouldn’t be surprised by the news, but I think it should be valued as the goal of a path towards normality which needs other stages and to consolidate over time – he continued -.

I wish good luck to Maria Sole Ferrieri Caputi, Francesca Di Monte and Tiziana Trasciatti, but at the same time my thoughts also go to Emily Biolatto, a young referee who was the victim of an attack in the Alessandria area.” Then he concluded: “Every year almost 500 referees are beaten or insulted, this means that we must work systematically, each in their own role, to affirm respect and education in sport, as in other social areas, starting from school. These principles must be trained and promoted daily, because sport often evokes them but is not always able to practice them.” (ANSA).
