Feminist protesters jumped barriers as stars walked the red carpet for the London premiere of the film Suffragette. Groups of women lay down just a few feet from where the likes of Carey Mulligan and Helena Bonham Carter were giving interviews. The activists from the Sisters Uncut group wore tops with posters saying "Dead women can't vote" and "Two women killed every week".   Others held banners with the words "50/50 Parliament", demanding equality in the British Government.

"And I keep thinking I wish I could. I would like to be as brave as that. For these women to do that tonight, I think it's awesome." She said: "I think our (film) industry is a microcosm of the world in general. So our society is inherently sexist and so our industry is but all major industry is."     The scenes in Leicester Square mirrored those in the period drama, which tells the story of the British women's equality movement of the late 19th and early 20th century.

Fifa president Sepp Blatter is facing a 90-day provisional suspension. Members of Fifa's ethics committee have recommended the sanction after the Swiss attorney general opened criminal proceedings against the 79-year-old. He is accused of signing a contract "unfavourable" to football's governing body and making a "disloyal payment" to Uefa president Michel Platini. Blatter denies any wrongdoing and his lawyers said he had "not been notified of any action". European football chief Platini - who wants to succeed Blatter - has said the payment was "valid compensation" from his time working under the Swiss more than nine years ago.   The investigatory chamber of Fifa's ethics committee has requested the ban and a final decision is likely to be made on Thursday by Hans Joachim Eckert, the head of Fifa's ethics adjudicatory chamber.

  All heads and officials of the various sporting disciplines with the exception of the Ghana Football Association held a press conference on Tuesday at the Hockey Pitch to present their petition to the president of the 4th republic of Ghana, H.E John Dramani Mahama.   Unfortunately the content of the petition was not disclosed to the media because president Mahama has travelled to France for negotiations.     Among the heads was Mr Ben Nunu Mensah who happens to be Ghana Weightlifting Federation.   According to Ben Nunu, government must treat all federations equally and stop singling football out all the time.       He said it will be very sad for someone to say they couldn’t achieve anything during their term, without considering the financial challenges they faced in the administration of their duties.       George Darko is one of the duo who won gold medal in the lawn division in this year’s All Africa Games.   George has received half of the $5,000 which was agreed to be given to him.   The Sports Ministry has still not released money to the Tennis Federation even though they have qualified to the Davis Cup in Egypt.   George has threatened to naturalize for any country that is ready to appreciate what he has been doing likewise amateur boxer Sulley Tetteh.       The Sports Ministry’s failure to provide capital for the Ghana Boxing Federation which used to be the Ghana Amateur Boxing, has prevented the four amateur boxers who qualified from the All Africa Games to partake in the ongoing Olympic Games qualifier,  which is taking place in Doha, Qatar.       Hon Ken Dzirasah has suggested that all sporting disciplines should be halted for four years so that all arrears could be cleared within this period.       The federations are therefore calling on government to save the situation before it gets out of hands.
