The benefits of sports for all.


Many barriers women and girls face in sport – including unequal pay, equipment, access, protection, and representation – are the same barriers they face in society.

Gender equality in sport lifts the status and role of women and girls in society.

We tackle issues such as the wage gap, protections against abuse, exclusion as spectators, sexism in reporting, and representation on governing boards.

As watchdog, we hold sports bodies accountable to enforce non-discriminatory practices and gender equality quotas.

As bulldog, we leverage our networks and media to denounce human rights violators.



We identify issues that violate the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.



We build and support campaigns by leveraging our media, networks, and resources.



We amplify the voices and visibility of athletes and other sports influencers.



We reach decision-makers with the power to change policy and culture.
