Spanish Women Top Division Footballers To Go On Strike

Players in the Spanish women's soccer league have decided to go on strike after failing to reach a deal with clubs over working hours and minimum wages.

It is the latest move in the fight by female athletes worldwide for greater equality with men.

Around 200 Primera Iberdrola players met in Madrid and voted in favour of the strike, which is expected to begin in November after legal requirements are met.

More than 90 per cent of players voted in favour of the strike, which would be the first in women's football in Spain.

The move by Spanish women comes a few months after U.S. soccer players, led by Megan Rapinoe, used the World Cup in France to bring increased attention to the women's fight for equal pay.
