The tutú girl
Dalia is an adorable revolutionary. There is no other definition for her rebelliousness. She is 7 years old, lives in Paraguay and plays football. Until here, everything looks normal. The revolution appears with her clothing, which challenges neighborhoods and stories, and exposes a reality that is changing. Dalia plays uniformed with a tutu. This short. Dressed in that attire, she dominates the ball and innocently mocks the established parameters. “Paradigm” is a very complex word for a 7-year-old girl, and that is why she decided to destroy them. Dalia plays with boys and girls, but dressed in tutu, showing that one can be feminine, revolutionary and crack. She dances in the pitch, but she does it with the ball on her feet, an idea in her mind, and talent in her plays. With her tutu she prides a culture that is in full metamorphosis; a culture that observes how women empower themselves with their talents and achieve social changes; a culture that is moved by Dalia’s revolution, which allows princesses or heroines to play soccer, change the world, and demonstrate, with a tutu and a ball, that the ball does not have time to discriminate.
