Can’t compare women’s football with juniors. The reason women’s football is developing rapidly is because investment is starting to trickle into it, and it allows more professionalism. The only reason women’s football was getting less coverage or attention is literally because of structural sexism - women’s football was banned here *because it was too popular*, and the men saw it as a threat. Thankfully now people are realising the immense growth potential of this and other women’s sports. If anything, Junior clubs with ambition could be exploring opportunities to set up a women’s team, and establish themselves as a top-flight club in the women’s game sooner than they can do so in the men’s. The former being useful in helping towards the latter, through greater brand recognition.
