Our Beliefs

Women in Sport believes sport transforms lives. It can give girls and women resilience, courage, self-belief and a sense of belonging.

So our vision is that:

No-one is excluded from the joy, fulfilment and lifelong benefits of sport.

We know gender stereotypes and institutional bias are holding girls and women back from sport, and in life, and we believe:

Our beliefs

  1. It is wrong to deny women and girls access to sport
  2. The distinct physicality of women and girls must be understood and reflected in sport
  3. When sport includes women and girls it helps to tackle gendered economic and health inequalities
