England captain Williamson to address UN

Leah Williamson, the England women’s footballer, will make history by becoming the first to address the United Nations. Her speech, which will take place at the UN’s Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) Summit in New York, will focus on challenging gender stereotypes and promoting equality for girls worldwide. Williamson’s message will be centered around the theme of “Don’t leave girls behind.” During the event, she will engage in a one-on-one conversation with Vee Kativhu, a prominent activist for girls’ education. The Arsenal player will share her experiences from a recent visit to Za’atari, the largest Syrian refugee camp in the world, where she witnessed the transformative power of football for girls and communities. Williamson emphasized the importance of creating a level playing field for girls globally, stating that football has personally changed her life. She highlighted the positive impact of the football program, Coaching for Life, in the Za’atari camp, which helps girls overcome challenges they face. Through The Arsenal Foundation’s collaboration with Save the Children, they have demonstrated how sport can empower girls and involve boys in this journey. The event will provide an opportunity for Williamson to advocate for equal opportunities and inspire change.
