なでしこジャパンのロンドン五輪からの帰国時は男女平等に対応して頂きたい!#nadeshiko #london2012

English translation below.




日 本サッカー協会(JFA)会長は、「メダルを取ればビジネスクラスの利用を考える」と述べているそうですが、このような男女の処遇の差は、メダルの獲得以 前の問題です。現にオーストラリア代表女子バスケットボールチームも同じように男女における不平等な待遇を受け、その処遇に対して多くの批判が集まりまし た。それにより、現地の協会は方針を見なおしています。


私 たちは、高校時代に共にサッカーをやっていた幼なじみ同士であり、また、なでしこジャパンの一ファンとして彼女たちへの感謝の気持ちと同時に、日本サッ カーに深く存在する男女の処遇の差を取り除く大事な一歩として、Change.orgでこのキャンペーンを発信することにしました。



@JFA Provide equal treatment to the women’s and men’s soccer teams on their flight back home from the Olympics!

Two weeks ago, Japan's women’s soccer team and reigning world champions Nadeshiko Japan flew economy to the London Olympics while their male counterparts were seated in business class.

The chairman of the Japanese Football Association (JFA) said that a business-class return flight “would be considered for the women's team if they bring a medal home”.

But equality between our women's and men's teams shouldn't depend on a medal.

Since the devastating earthquake in March last year, Nadeshiko Japan has been a source of hope and strength for our country. Their world championship title, their sportsmanship throughout the tournament, and their steadfast determination in the face of great odds have given all of us 元気 (genki) – the Japanese word for spirit, energy, courage, and strength.

Nadeshiko Japan have given us pride in the achievements of our citizens, our athletes, and our women, and it’s time they are recognized for it.

We call on the Japan Football Association (JFA) and Japan Airlines (JAL) to provide equal treatmentto the women’s and men’s soccer teams on their flight back home from the Olympics.
