Locker Room Talk UF

In many locker rooms, a macho-culture is created and with it comes an often degrading view of women. When boys start to approach their teens, a negative change occurs in locker rooms. Our business idea is to visit sports teams and meet young boys in the locker room to talk about gender equality and how to change bad attitudes and degrading talk in the changing rooms. To work with gender equality is among the core values of all sports clubs, but they seldom have the tools to implement it. Until now.
