This is the first in a series of stories from the Women's World Cup, which will span different nations, teams, aspects and elements of the competition. An array of accomplished writers and scholars will be filing regularly from Canada with an eye on bringing a wide-ranging scope to the 2015 tournament. Sepp Blatter and other leaders at FIFA have, in recent years, prided themselves on their support for women’s soccer. But the sport lags far behind the men’s game; no federation in the world offers equal financial support to the women’s and men’s programs, and neither does FIFA.
