Brazilian women protest harassment


Players from Brazil’s women’s football team protested against sexual harassment yesterday, just days after the president of the national federation was suspended for allegation­s of the same thing. Roge´ rio Caboclo was accused a week ago before the ethics committee of the Brazilian Football Confederat­ion. A former staffer provided recordings of conversati­ons and text messages. Caboclo denies any wrongdoing. Brazil players including superstar Marta used their social media channels to protest, but didn’t name Caboclo, who is not expected to return to his position after the 30-day suspension.
