Enforce a zero-tolerance policy on gender-based violence
Over the past year, several players from different clubs have been charged with sexual violence. There is no process for how these cases are dealt with, and no recognition of the culture that contributes to gender-based violence.
It's time for the Premier League and the Football Association to break the silence, take accountability and change the culture on gender-based violence in football, and enforce a policy for players who are suspected of causing harm.
As long as the Premier League protects players, this culture of impunity will persist.
Several survivors have already come forward to share their experiences of assault from footballers, and what needs to change.
