WHY IS NATIONAL GIRLS AND WOMEN IN SPORTS DAY IMPORTANT?
1) It breaks gender stereotypes:
At least 75% of girls have heard derogatory remarks about girls in sports. National Girls and Women in Sports Day reiterates the narrative that women belong in all sports.
2) It inspires girls and women to be active:
The celebration of National Girls and Women in Sports Day helps convey the importance of being physically active and encourages women to realize their full potential.
3) It honors the achievements of female athletes: While discussing the history of women’s achievements, the role of sports in women’s social emancipation is usually ignored.
National Girls and Women in Sports Day appreciates the achievements of female coaches and athletes and acknowledges the role of sports to help unlock the boundless potential of women.
