Sport has been too slow to change, too slow to face up to the realities of the misogyny women face.
At Women in Sport, our purpose is to create lasting change for women and girls in sport and society. Thought leadership and policy change sit at the heart of this.
Our policy positions are based on our deep understanding of the needs of women and girls throughout their lives as well as our understanding of the wider societal issues that affect women and girls. They reflect our core beliefs and are rooted in our research and insight. We use our unique knowledge to engage with the people making the decisions that affect women and girls in sport the most: politicians, civil servants and officials in all the nations of the UK, in local government and internationally, Sports Councils, National Governing Bodies of sports, and more.
We work with politicians and policymakers at all levels of national and local government. On this page you’ll find our most recent policy briefings, written specifically for politicians and policymakers.
