The Italian Federation has decided to organize various awareness initiatives throughout the season that can make a tangible contribution to the fight against a phenomenon that is difficult to eradicate: gender violence. Thus was born #MaiPiù, a permanent campaign for the Italian Women’s Professional League division that will open on Saturday 16 September on the first day of the tournament.

minute of silence

“Next weekend, we will observe a minute of silence in all stadiums in memory of the women who are victims of femicide and all those whose physical and mental integrity and human dignity have been violated,” announced Federica Cappelletti, President of the Women’s Professional First Division. “Since the beginning of the year, 79 women have lost their lives, and no Others still live in fear. We no longer want and cannot stand by the window, it is time to work as one and demand more attention to an issue that concerns us all. Every woman has the right to life and respect.”

The banner

The hashtag #MaiPiù will be displayed on the banner at each match when the teams line up. We start on Saturday with the match between Pomigliano and Juventus, scheduled for 3pm at the Stadio Ligure in Torre del Greco. The campaign then continues with activities in schools, social initiatives, and the participation of sports and entertainment figures.
