Players on National Teams Participating in the FIFA Women's World Cup Canada 2015 v FIFA and CSA
More Than a Surface Issue
A group of national female soccer players from the United States and abroad applied to the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario, alleging that the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) and the Canadian Soccer Association (CSA) are discriminating against women by making them play on artificial turf for the FIFA Women's World Cup Canada 2015. The men's World Cup is always held on natural grass. Published in Charter and Human Rights Legislation, Volume XXI, No.2, by Federated Press.
