An incredible 29 million women and girls play football across the globe. But it wasn’t always this way…
Helena Pielichaty, author of the popular Girls FC series, traces the development of women’s football from its ban by the FA in 1921 to its current status as the UK’s number one team participation sport for women and girls. This lively history introduces the early pioneers of the game, from suffragette Netty Honeyball to the munitions workers whose teams competed during the First World War, alongside contemporary players from around the world.

About the Author
Helena Pielichaty (pronounced Pierre-li-hatty) has written over thirty books for children. Her latest series, Girls FC, is set around a fictional girls’ football team so she was delighted to be asked to write her first non-fiction book for HarperCollins on a subject close to her heart. Helena’s auntie played women’s football in the 1950s and her daughter played from the age of 9 to 26. Helena herself has never played football but was an enthusiastic, if inept, wing defence on her school netball team.
