Classroom

Goals for Girls shows how powerful ideas about gender and biology, perpetuated by the media, sports industry, and families, can limit women´s lives – but female soccer players in Argentina are proving  those stereotypes wrong in their inspiring fight to play soccer.”

–Sarah S. Richardson, Harvard University, author of Sex Itself: The Search for Male and Female in Human Genome (Chicago, 2013)

Slum Girl Soccer Football The GOALS FOR GIRLS documentary puts your students in the middle of the struggle for gender equality in Latin America as young women fight to play the national sport that is off-limits to them in Argentina: football (soccer). Topics explored in the film include:
  • Family prejudice: how mothers often are the enforcers of sexism by not letting their daughters play, preferring that they fulfill gender norms of doing housework and being “feminine”.
  • Representation of women in the media, including interviews with sports commentators.
  • The fallacy of prejudice: by examining one prejudice (women can´t or shouldn´t play football) the fallacy of all prejudices are shown, and can be used to compare with prejudices students have or experience.
  • Life in shantytowns: discrimination, lack of resources and the role of the foreign volunteer.
  • Sport as a human right.
  • The importance of teamwork and goal setting: the film follows the team from the shantytown as they overcome many obstacles to reach the Homeless World Cup in Brazil.
  • The 75 minute film delves into these themes using first hand testimony supported by experts, interspersed with sequences following characters as they train in and outside of the shantytown. The film is fun to watch with a lively musical score and designed to provoke debate.
