Max Rushden is joined by Barry Glendenning, Ally Simcock, Suzanne Wrack and listener Sarah to discuss the experiences of women at football matches.

This episode was sparked by a listener getting in touch regarding our coverage of Cristiano Ronaldo – suggesting we should cover more broadly the experiences of women who attend football matches.
