Episode Info:

For years the Spanish women’s national team was treated like an afterthought by their coach and the Spanish Football Federation. The team’s most basic needs were ignored, they were paid almost nothing, and the coach regularly disrespected them. But when they qualified for the 2015 World Cup, they knew they had an opportunity to change that. They could harness the world’s attention and finally demand the resources and respect they deserved. But bringing about change meant taking on a century-old institution and a system built on inequality and rampant sexism.
