Dénia paid tribute this weekend to the footballers of the city's first women's team, who have left their mark on the history of local sport. In an emotional act, the players signed a ball that will be delivered to the girls and young people of the Municipal Soccer School.
The Mayor of Dénia, Vicent Grimalt, highlighted the importance of making the role of women in sport visible, stating that it is essential that the new generations know that "you can say, be and do what you want to say, be and do". In this sense, the mayor stressed that all women have the right to walk the paths they want without fear.
The act was attended by the twelve players who have made history in women's football in Dénia: Cristina, Victoria, M. José, Ernestina, M. Rosa, Maribel, Josefa, Pepa, Carmen, Gracia, M. Rosa and Josefa . The mayor thanked these pioneers for their courage and determination to overcome the obstacles that came their way.
The message was clear: it is about continuing to advance in gender equality and promoting women's sport in all its disciplines. The tribute to the footballers of the Dénia women's first team is another step in this direction, and a well-deserved recognition of their effort and dedication.
