This Girl Can

This Girl Can, Sport England’s flagship campaign to help women get active, is turning its attention to tackling the exercise ‘Enjoyment Gap’ – as it reveals 2.4 million fewer women than men enjoy sport and physical activity. ‘This Girl Can With You’ is a call-to-arms for sport and activity providers to dismantle the barriers that contribute to the Enjoyment Gap. Help women enjoy getting active by ensuring activities for women are:

  • Social (help women feel part of a community)
  • Suitable (meet women’s needs)
  • Self-Affirming (help women feel confident)
  • Safe (women must feel physically and emotionally safe when taking part).
