Victoria Stewart took to Twitter to address a concerning issue in the sports industry - gender inequality and misogyny.

Stewart's tweet followed the presence of Assistant Coach Jessica Campbell on the Seattle Kraken's bench, which unfortunately led to a barrage of inappropriate comments.

Several comments made in response to Campbell's role were outright disrespectful. Examples included insinuations about her personal life and offensive stereotypes about women.

Such comments reflected a concerning undercurrent of gender bias that continues to persist in the sports world. Stewart's tweet shed light on the pressing need to confront gender inequality and misogyny within sports.

It serves as a reminder that progress is necessary to ensure equal opportunities and respectful treatment for all, regardless of gender.
