What kind of policies do you feel needed in order to increase the women involvement in local sport field?
Women’s participation in sport was recognised by the Beijing Declaration and The Platform for Action as an history marked by division and discrimination but also by important advances for gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls (Women, gender equality and sport: Published to promote the goals of The Beijing Declaration and The Platform for Action). From this point onwards, mainstreaming gender into the sport field became part of policy and legislative European documents. For example, you can consult the following documents that provide an overview on policies and practices around Europe: “Women, gender equality and sport: Published to promote the goals of The Beijing Declaration and The Platform for Action”, “Conclusions on gender equality in sport : Education, Youth, Culture and Sport Council meeting Brussels”, “Gender equality in sports: Access for Girls and Women to Sport Practices” .
