SWNT help Show Racism the Red Card

Tuesday, 21 June 2016


The Scotland Women’s National Team were on hand to help Show Racism the Red Card at Hampden Park yesterday.

National Team Coach Anna Signeul was joined by Scotland and Glasgow City duo Hayley Lauder and Fiona Brown at the event, in which pupils from Glasgow and Clackmannanshire went through an educational workshop on combating racism and discrimination.

Speaking to the Scottish FA website, Signeul said: "The women's national team players are proud to be role models for young people in Scotland, and it's important for us to support events like this.

"The latest Show Racism The Red Card campaign was a great way of educating young people to recognise discrimination. Yesterday’s event was an engaging and informative way of tackling this subject, and we were delighted to play a part in it."

Nicola Hay Campaign Manager, Show Racism the Red Card, said: “The dangers of racism are significant and education is vital so that young people can recognise these and other forms of discrimination.

“Schools are very keen to engage with the campaign and the young people we have worked with are very positive about it.

“The national women’s team are strong supporters of the campaign and it is great to be able to bring pupils along to such an iconic stadium to learn about anti-racism with female role models”
