Bibiana Steinhaus is the first female ref in European top-flight football.




- Has been a fourth official in the Bundesliga (German league) for a few years now. Will referee a Bundesliga match this weekend.

- Took charge of Bayern's cup game last week against Chemnitzer.

- Has been a referee for the 2.Bundesliga (the second division of German football) since 2011. Refereed the final of women's football at the London Olympics and this year's Women's Champions League final.

- Has experienced sexism on the job, most notably an incident with Kerem Demirbay (aka trash who plays for Hoffenheim), then playing for Fortuna Duesseldorf, who told her women had no place in football. He received a deserved five match ban.
