Good Luck.
Indonesian sportswear manufacturer has had to apologise for label on its merchandise that people deemed to be sexist. label appeared on shirts of one of country's top football clubs, Super League team Pusamania Borneo. It read: "Washing instructions: Give this shirt to woman. It's her job." company, Salvo Sports, issued its apology on Sunday March 9th, which was unfortunate timing as Sunday just happened to be International Women's Day, occasion to honour and celebrate women's achievements around world. company received flood of complaints on social media from people who thought wording on label was highly inappropriate.

company was quick to offer apology and said it did not mean to denigrate women. Salvo Sports spokesperson said on Twitter: " message is simply, instead of washing it in wrong way, you might as well give it to lady because they are more capable." It added: "There is no intention to humiliate women. In contrast, we want to tell men to learn from women on how to take care of clothes." Many people felt apology was also sexist. On more positive note for women, Asian Football Confederation (AFC) launched its inaugural AFC Women's Football Day on Sunday. This is designed to recognise events that develop and promote women's game in Asia.
