Our friends at the Latino Media Collective guest host this week's show. In this episode, the LMC shines the spotlight on the struggle for gender equality in Argentina women's futbol. Despite a lack of support, institutional sexism, and hazardous training conditions, Argentina's women's national team is still close to reaching next year's Women's World Cup. So we speak with Gabriela Gartón, goalkeeper for Argentina's national team, and Nemesia Hijo, assistant professor of social anthropology at the University of Buenos Aires.
