FWF 2022: Legacy of the Lionesses Calendar

10 November 2022 - 10 November 2022
7pm - 9pm

Lionesses Legacy

For the first time in decades, an English national team brought home a major international trophy. Like 1966, it was done at Wembley in front of a sellout crowd. Unlike 1966, it was a feat achieved by the women's team.

The Lionesses' actions on and off the pitch have served as an inspiration to millions across the country. As part of the festival, BBC Radio Five Live and Sky Sports broadcaster Caroline Barker. will be sitting down with two of England's great sportswriters to discuss their achievements - and their potential legacy.

Suzy Wrack is a key voice for women's football at the Guardian, and has recently penned A Woman's Game: The Rise, Fall, and Rise Again of Women's Football.

Carrie Dunn is a journalist and writer whose book, Unsuitable for Females, charts the rise of the Lionesses and women's football in England.

Our critically-acclaimed duo will be joined by one of the first black women to play for the Lionesses. Kerry Davis represented the national side for 16 years, and was a key member of the Mundialito-winning squad of 1985. The midfielder - third in the all-time Lionesses scoring charts - will be on hand to discuss her experiences during WEURO 1984, as well as the most recent tournament.
