The Swedish National Team made waves when they donned jerseys with not their names, but inspiring quotes for International Women’s Day last week.
A nation known for its strong-willed people, it’s not a wonder that they made this bold — and much needed — move.

“The initiative is first and foremost about showing the power in togetherness, together with the national team, in which football and the womens national team’s great success are good examples. We also hope to inspire people to stand up for each other and for themselves, no matter who you are or where you come from.”
