It’s high time Filipina athletes are given equal opportunities, equal representation, and equal equity in sports. And while RA 9710 or the Magna Carta for women has been signed and sealed in 2009, we are counting on entities like Manila Flag Football league to enforce this and create a better and more competitive platform for women in sports. At the rate they’re going, and with international tournaments underway, who’s to say what opportunities may be presented to Filipina flag football athletes. We’ve seen the #growflagfootball hashtag used quite consistently, and with MFL’s strategic moves, it’s no doubt that they are indeed the biggest driver of this impact-driven mission.
So, ladies, grab a ball, lace up your shoes, and tackle the world of flag football! Let’s show everyone what Filipino female athletes are capable of. Flag up, fierce Filipinas!
