Abstract:In 2009, in Senegal, a women's football street tournament is organized for the first time by the association Ladies' Turn. Despite the passionate commitment of Seyni, the former captain of the women's national team, and of the women and men that fight at her side, the game is far from won. In 2011, defying taboos and prejudices, the girls return to the fields and play for a growing audience. Will they be allowed to go all the way and play the game they love?
