The “Inequality Balls” Project draws the attention to gender inequality turning different sports balls into a visual representation of the problem
espnW, in partnership with Penalty and Netshoes launches a campaign that illustrates inequality between men and women in sports. The objective is to draw attention to the huge gap in terms of investments, prize money and salaries.
The project, created by ad agency Africa, kicks off with a launch film featuring female athletes who are icons in Brazilian sports, such as Jaqueline Silva, Virna Dias, Betina Schmidt and Camila Brait, from volleyball, Alline Calandrini, from soccer and Marisa Cintra, from freestyle soccer. Called Inequality Balls, it brings exclusive balls that were produced by Penalty – the largest Brazilian sporting goods manufacturer - and will be sold and distributed all over Brazil by Netshoes, the leading sports online retailer in Latin America. The profit from the sales will be donated to female empowerment NGO Think Olga and others.
The initiative was born as an answer to a survey conducted by the British newspaper Sporting Intelligence in 2017 that analyzed the salaries of 465 teams in 29 different leagues, in 16 countries for 9 different sports and highlighted the huge gender gap present in all sports. To draw the attention to the matter and prompt effective changes, the project uses two colors in basketballs, soccer balls, handballs, and volleyballs as a visual representation of the differences between female and male athletes.
