Gender equality in sport

23.11.2016 / Created by (EMWF)

Sport implies two different perspectives that are increasingly considered at EU level: professional sport and sport as a leisure activity. In both cases, sport represents a large and fast-growing sector of the economy and makes an important contribution to growth and jobs. Sport encourages social interaction, which is important for both young and old, women and men, and promotes physical and mental health. It can also foster education, communication, negotiation skills and leadership, vital for women’s empowerment.
