03.06.2016 / Created by (EMWF)

Women in many places of the world still don´t have equal access and opportunities in sports. This study considers sport to be a viable tool for addressing gender equity on a broader scale. It discusses that sport can benefit girls and women by: 1) Enhancing health and well-being; 2) Fostering self-esteem and empowerment; 3) Facilitating social inclusion and integration; 4) Challenging gender norms; and 5) Providing opportunities for leadership and achievement.
