There's a stark contrast between what men and women earn in UK football. With a huge boost from the recent Women's World Cup, what does the future hold for the sport? My biggest regret in life is turning my back on international football. I chose an education instead of the sport. Over a decade later the profile of the women's game has never been higher - but there's still so much to do.
I have spent my career working with women who have been beaten, raped and exploited. What all failed to understand in the debate, is that women are beaten and raped exactly because they have less value in society. To me it was not about money and wages it was about worth. So as the government marched through the no lobby it felt like we women were worthless. So who can we blame when this week two of us, the worthless, are murdered?
