Women players taking legal action against 'sexist' European Handball Federation

Women handball players in Spain are up in arms over a ‘sexist’ rule that stipulates that their midriffs must be exposed while playing on sand.

European Handball Federation regulations also insist that bikini tops and bottoms should have a maximum width of 10 centimetres.

The rules for male players are far less rigorous, with players allowed to wear clothing that is ‘loose and long’.

 

The Basque Handball Association has made an official complaint to the European Commission about the regulations, according to The Local.
