I want more justice: Mana Shim

The sexual misconduct allegations on Paul Riley have turned many heads towards the endemic problem of male domination in women’s sports. Mana Shim who played for Portland Thorns while Riley coached the team turned out to be one of the players who accused him. Her ex-teammate at Thorns, Sinead Farrelly has been also one of the players to speak out against Riley’s conduct during his time as a coach. 

I want more justice, I want better policies and I want players to be protected. And, at the same time, I feel like we're on the right path and I'm grateful for everyone who has reached out and supported us.

The support of this story by everyone globally has blown me away. It's given my pain purpose and that has been a liberation for me that I've not been able to feel for almost 10 years. Everyone who has reached out and shown support has turned this moment into a movement and made this matter. I don't have words, just pure gratitude. It's made this what it should be, which is a huge deal in demanding change.
