Sue Glassey chair of the Muaythai Female commission stated this is a fantastic opportunity to promote the popularity of female muaythai and also our cooperation with UN Women to promote ending violence against women and gender equality.
The cooperation with UN Women, the WMC and IFMA goes back now for 3 years and Muaythai will continue to use the power of the sport and the popularity of the athletes to create awareness and sends a clear message. We stand United.
