No catcalling or hassle, why female football fans feel safer in Qatar than at matches at home
Ellie Molloson, an 18-year-old Nottingham Forest fan and advocate for safer spaces for women in football, was "really nervous" about travelling to Qatar to cheer on England.
"I didn't think I was going to feel safe here. I was worried about if I show skin will I get arrested... and it's just not been the case at all," she told ITV News.
She adds: "I felt incredibly safe."
"I've not had any catcalling or any of the strange comments that you would perhaps get in England sometimes.
"They've just been incredibly hospitable."
Ms Molloson spearheaded the HerGameToo
campaign to improve the culture on the terraces for women football supporters by fighting sexist abuse in sport.
She travelled to Qatar with her dad as her chaperone, but her experience at the tournament has been better than many of her afternoons on the terraces in England.
"I think the easiest way to describe it is it's much more subdued here. It's much calmer. I've not experienced any sort of hostility, I don't mean necessarily to me personally, I haven't even witnessed anything. And that's regardless of gender. I've just not even seen it.
"Sometimes you get football fans getting a bit angry. And there's been none of that at all."
