Celebrating 40 years of Women in Sport

40 years of challenging gender inequality in sport, of proving the need for change, of tireless campaigning zeal.

Creating Mini Allies

  • Our latest research shows boys as young as 5 learn girls don't belong in sport

    So we created a campaign to get the nation talking.

  • “When boys are grown up they work and exercise. When girls grow up, they have to stay at home and make food.” (Primary school boy)
