At WealthiHer, we believe in supporting and empowering women in all aspects of life, including sports. Today, we want to address the recent World Cup kiss scandal involving Spanish footballer, Jenni Hermoso, and express our unwavering support for her.
Jenni Hermoso, an incredibly talented and dedicated athlete, has been a role model for aspiring players around the world. Her skills on the field, her leadership, and her commitment to the game have inspired countless young women to pursue their passion for football. However, it is disheartening to witness how arguably one of the biggest moments of her career was robbed by the actions of a superior.
21 days after the kiss took place, live across the world, Luis Rubiales has resigned. Despite Legal action, global calls and demonstrations against him, Luis continued to claim the kiss was ‘mutual’ and still protests his innocence stating “I have faith in the truth and I will do everything in my power to prevail.”
As a female-run company committed to the empowerment of women, we stand firmly by Jenni Hermoso and applaud her undying commitment to football. We believe in creating a safe and inclusive environment where survivors of sexual assault are heard, supported, and empowered to seek justice. We refuse to let this scandal overshadow her achievements and contributions to the sport. Instead, we choose to focus on the positive impact she has made, not only as a player but as a role model for young girls who dream of playing football professionally.
