This video highlights the role that sport can play in connecting girls and inspiring a future, which was the theme of International Women's Day 2012. UNESCO Bangkok jointly with Bangkok Prep School, Right to Play Thailand Foundation and Duang Prateep Foundation organized a friendly mixed football match: "Only Girls Can Score". Teams won by valuing and supporting their female team members and, thus, promoted gender equality on the sports field and beyond.
