The Critical Stans Episode One: “World Cup Misogyny”

Like a billion odd other people, we avidly followed the greatest sporting event of all time, the World Cup. But as women following the World Cup, it’s near impossible to ignore the sexism. From the camera zooming into female fans and sexualising them to former footballers making a fool of themselves on sports talk shows, we were not impressed. In the very first episode of The Critical Stans (2018), Shaazia Ebrahim and Fatima Moosa speak misogyny in football fandoms – but also just fandoms in general.

Produced by Sipho Hlongwane.
