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