Women’s World Football Show, Episode 156 features exclusive interviews with Founder and Creator of Backr, Denise Duffy; and Senior Creative at Twitter UK, Vivyen Bowdler.
U.S. Women’s National Team co-captain Megan Rapinoe inspired a generation in her recent acceptance speech for 2019 FIFA Best Player award. She said – “We have incredible platforms. I ask everyone here … lend your platform to other people, lift other people up, share your success. We have so much power!”
In this special episode of Women’s World Football Show we explore the power we all have within ourselves to be our best selves by lifting each other up, feeding our passions with positivity and changing the world!
In this episode, we feature two amazing and creative women who found a way to use their talents to help build and sustain the thing they’re most passionate about – women’s football!
Are you ready to be inspired to give your talents to live your passion? We can do it – we have the power! Let’s start now!
Denise Duffy fell in love with women’s soccer and took an analytical approach (as most software engineers do) at discovering and solving the the major problem of the game – small salaries and lack of funds for the athletes.
Denise and her team dove head first into solving this problem creating Backr, an online platform that gives athletes the opportunity to make money by using the power of their own brand; and gives fans the opportunity to support their favorite athletes. (11’)

As a Senior Creative at Twitter UK, Viv Bowdler presented the idea of creating a Women’s World Cup social media campaign unlike anything we’ve seen before – one that would lift up the tournament and its footballers.
This unique campaign included the hashtag #WomeninFootball, a specially-designed emoji (created by Viv), high-quality produced spotlight videos, and beautifully painted street murals depicting many of the stars in women’s football.,
This campaign could only be created and championed by someone who absolutely loves the game and that’s Viv Bowdler! This is one interview you’ll never forget! (49′)
