Football Association board member Heather Rabbatts has added to mounting pressure on Premier League boss Richard Scudamore, arguing he should give "serious consideration" to his position after sexist remarks were uncovered by leaked emails.
In a statement reported in numerous media outlets, Ms Rabbatts said the emails symbolised "a closed culture of sexism" at the Premier League.
She also called for a review of the League's governance "with a view to improving accountability and tackling head on a culture that demeans women and seems to discourage their involvement in the game's administration".
Ms Rabbatts added: "These challenges go beyond the current situation of chief executive Richard Scudamore, however if the League are to move forward in a positive way then he and they should give serious consideration to his position in the coming days."
