    Engaging Women

    Women's Sporting Journey's

    "Gender inequalities in sports participation still exist at every age, so any insight that helps to re-dress this balance is incredibly valuable...

    Fear of judgement is preventing millions of women from enjoying sport in their lives, but there is so much more that sports can do. This research highlights the enormous positive impact of providing compassionate, welcoming environments and showcasing women of all ages and backgrounds participating."
