Discrimination still an issue in women's football

Limited opportunities and artificial turf are just a few issues hampering the world of women's football.

    The Women's World Cup in Canada is giving women's football a profile like never before.

    The number of teams in this year's event have increased to 24 from 16 in 2011.
