The Lingerie Football League is coming to Australia. On Saturday.
The LFL is far from being a genuine women's sport. The event objectifies women, undermining women's equality in sport and women's status as serious sports women. The LFL plans to hold two promotional matches - in Brisbane on June 2 and Sydney on June 9 - followed by an official launch in 2013.
Your urgent action is required today. Here is what we need you to do:
