This insight pack provides in-depth research into women and physical activity as they transition through menopause into later life.
This is our toolkit inspired by Project 51, a partnership project with Sported funded by Comic Relief.
This toolkit is inspired by our research into reframing sport for teenage girls to help welcome them into sport and physical activity.
Too many women and girls are needlessly missing out on the lifelong benefits and rewards of sport and physical activity during their teenage years.
Our toolkit inspired by Get Out Get Active brings you resources, templates and key findings from the programme which is funded by Spirit of 2012.
Shining a light on the visibility of women’s sport coverage in the media.
Girls are less active than boys and by age 13 – 15, only 8% of girls meet the Chief Medical Officer’s recommendation that young people aged 5 – 18 should do 60 minutes of physical activity every day.
Women are less active than men, with 27% of women inactive and a further 15% fairly active but doing less than the recommended amount of physical activity.
Currently women are under-represented in senior leadership roles and on Boards in the sector. There is also evidence of discrimination and negative workplace culture.
Menopause is a taboo subject in our society and women going through the menopause are missing out on the benefits of being physically active.
