The World Cup in Canada came bigger, with an increase from 16 to 24 participating teams. It also came as a shock: in a disastrous experiment, the tournament was played on synthetic turf, which caused frequent injuries. The revolt at this novelty, which had always been rejected in men's tournaments, fueled the need to fight for the modality's appreciation, which set the tone of the edition. The players' agenda was supported by women's social movements and had more reach in the press.
