#FOOTBALLMoJo - Sexist Chanting in #FOOTBALL, @CarolynRadford - Must watch!

13:00 WSN-TV Sexist chanting must be tackled - 'horrible' footage

13:00

Sexism in Women’s Football
According to a survey, two-thirds of the women who are associated in the field of football have gone through discrimination in the work setting and more than one-thirds think that they are underpaid compared to the men who are generally doing a similar job.

The study exposes the measure of discrimination in this well-loved game, revealing that among those who have been involved in sexism in a workplace setting, almost one-third have witnessed that women were often told that they cannot handle their jobs properly due to their gender.

Notwithstanding the immense success of several women like Margaret Bryne, chief executive for Sunderland and Karren Brady, vice chairman of West Ham United, discrimination is still very much rampant in the world of football. Brady has been speaking openly of the sexism she has experienced in her journey as the managing director for Birmingham 
 
More info HERE 
From the BBC . . . The Football Association is calling on fans to report sexist abuse at games after being shown disturbing scenes of women officials and staff being subjected to obscene chants.

Footage obtained by the BBC shows Chelsea's female medic Dr Eva Carneiro and a female assistant referee Helen Byrne suffering taunts during recent matches. FA board member Heather Rabbatts described the abuse as "horrible". She said it should not be tolerated, adding: "We are absolutely encouraging people to report incidents like this."

The footage was taken at Chelsea matches against Manchester City and Manchester United, as well as a game in the Football League. Chelsea said in a statement: "'The issue of equality is one that we take extremely seriously at Chelsea Football Club and we abhor discrimination in all its forms, including sexism. We find such behaviour unacceptable and we want it eradicated from the game.

"This season, 25 match-day incidents of sexist abuse have been reported to anti-discrimination campaign group Kick It Out and equality group Women in Football (WiF). Last season, there were just two. However, a lack of evidence means no club or fan has ever been punished by football's governing bodies.
Manchester City admitted "a breakdown in communication" meant "the usual investigation process was not followed". The club added: "A new specific guidance on sexist abuse was introduced from the very next game and a new training programme implemented." Manchester United said: "No complaint was made at the time, so any feedback of this nature made after the event has to be referred to the police, which the club did within 24 hours."

The Football Supporters' Federation said it "doesn't receive many complaints in relation to sexist chanting at games, although that isn't to say it doesn't happen".

#HERMoJo ♀ Third trimester pregnancy workout - exercise ball & dumbbells .@kimmy_fitness @Her_MoJo

13:00 keep your MoJo during pregnancy

13:00

KimmyFitness supports #ACTIV8afriend - a gentle 'nudge' every month to help get more women, more ACTIVE

Welcome to Kimmyfitness. My world of my work combined with my life= mummy fitness. You will find lots of workout videos that you can safely do through out your pregnancy and post pregnancy too. There are step by step workout videos and short clips of workouts you can do. Please feel free to comment, share and subscribe!

This is a gentle full body THIRD TRIMESTER pregnancy workout

using an exercise ball which provides great comfort and support. You will also need some dumbbells or water-bottles(as weights) self preference and depending where you are at with your fitness levels. This is a step-by-step video that you can do with me. It can be 12minutes long or 24minutes long depending whether you wish to do one or two rounds. I would recommend 2 rounds but it is completely up to you and how you feel. 

Your third trimester is very demanding so you have to listen to your body. However keeping as active as you can will massively benefit you. 

Please feel free to contact me at any time; kimmyfitnesspt@gmail.com ! Make sure your midwife is aware you are exercising, and please do not ignore any abnormal Pain or discomfort. Keep hydrated throughout and take breaks when needed. Enjoy 

Do be careful training #postpregnancy because our body still continues to have the relaxin hormone in, which makes our bodies very flexible and our joints quite loose. This is why I would advise no heavy lifting within the first few months especially if you are new to exercise! You know your body so please go with the options that are given if you need to! Remember we have all started from the beginning

In the last two exercises feel free to place your foot down if you need too - then aim to keep your foot off the ground through the exercise. Balance work is so amazing for your tummy! 

If you are ready to start my MummyFitness postpregnancy 6 month exercise program please get in touch; 
my mummyfitness@gmail.com All mummies are welcome.
