September 25, 2017. La Elvira, Cauca, Colombia. Some local residents from the nearby villages of Los Robles and El Cedral come to support their local teams, and members of the FARC women’s soccer team and fellow comrades sit on the stands in between games. The women’s soccer teams since April of 2017 have started to play game with local communities. Xiomara Mendez recalls that in times of combat they would play soccer in the middle of the jungle and two women were always included in the men’s team but never had the opportunity to play all women’s games.
