(BBC) – Women’s football may be the fastest growing sport in the world but it faces huge challenges in Africa.

More than 20 years after coming into existence, the African Women’s Championship still lives in the shadow of the men’s Africa Cup of Nations.

Although many people feel that the tournament is moving in the right direction, progress is painfully slow.

There also remains a perception among much of the public that women’s sport in general – and particularly football – is inferior to men’s.
