Women like football just as much as men do

Not only men are interested in football, Ene Poll explains in the daily Postimees and counters the all too prevalent prejudices: "For example a presenter invites a woman to the TV studio and begins with the question: 'How is it that this male domain ... .' Or some smart aleck tries to describe the unhappy lives of mothers who won't be able to watch television for a month because the football is on and the stereotypical male sits in front of the TV all day long with a beer in one hand. Help! Stop! Everyone watches football. During the World Cup four years ago I was on Malta, where every evening I went with a young French girl to the courtyard which had been turned into a pub to watch the games. And I'm convinced that the good Estonian mothers have set aside their cleaning and baking and are enjoying the games too. Because football is a brilliant game that is not only larger than life, but life itself."
