Empowering women through sports
Author(s): Dr. Amandeep Kaur
Background: Sports can be used to promote gender equity and empower girls and women. It is true that in all countries, girls and women are less likely than boys and men to participate in sport, and sport continues to be dominated by males. It is a mistake however, to assume that this is because girls and women do not wish to participate.
Recommendations: Gender equity will not happen by itself we have to work for it and speak out against discrimination. There are recommendations to bring about gender equity, support women's and girls’ sports, challenge the myths, speak out against gender inequity, encourage other women and girls, push for gender equity policies, publicize discrimination at your college or university and develop a media strategy.
