While the place of women in society is regularly questioned, it is even more questioned recently in the world of sport (media, governance, economy, etc.). This study sheds light on the place given to women, particularly sportswomen in the toponymy of French sports facilities. The study is based on data from a census of sports facilities, spaces and practice sites (RES) elaborated by the Ministry of Sports and updated on January 10, 2018. The study proposes in conclusion to give visibility to sportswomen through projects in the perspective of the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Paris 2024.
