Female Participation

Participation in sport at any level from grassroots to high performance contributes to healthy and active living. We all want women and girls to be equally able to experience the joy of playing in a football team or achieving a personal best, the boost to physical and emotional well-being from staying active, and the associated benefits for their academic achievement, careers and family life. We know through academic graduation rates and other measures that women have skills, knowledge and experience that are equal to men.
