The Role of Latin American Constitutionalism in Gender Justice in Woman’s Soccer

In this article, we analyze if some of the characteristics of New Latin American Constitutionalism can open a path to achieve gender justice in women’s soccer. Based on a study of the Colombian case, we seek to establish what type of opportunities and challenges are derived from the tools of regional constitutionalism for women soccer players who seek to vindicate their rights. We find the opportunities focus on the role the Constitutional Court has exercised in defending the rights of women soccer players, while the main challenge is the absence of a social movement that supports the demands of women in soccer.
