A woman wearing lipstick to play soccer brought to light the issue of sexism in Brazil, a country that loves soccer but proved itself to be very critical when women are on the field, even seeming to be bothered with their lipstick.
But Marta Vieira da Silva, an empowered woman, became even more empowered playing with lipstick on. And once and for all she proved not only that she’s the greatest player in the world, but also that she’s here to stay. In that same cup, while wearing Avon Marta scored the goal that made her the biggest goal scorer in the world. She then gave the most empowered and emotional public speech of her life.
