Football’s fight for fairness

The woman in charge of the Solomon Islands OFC Just Play sport for development programme knows she is trying to change long-held beliefs with a message of equality but she sees glimpses of a great future, sometimes in the most unlikely places.

No man is more admired in the Solomon Islands that the one who gets to wear the green, gold and blue of the Bonitos to represent the Pacific nation at football.

That glory might seem a long way from the dusty playgrounds of Guadacanal and Isabel schools where the devoted Just Play sport for development team use football to forge a fairer future for the Solomons.

But the connection is strong.
