By the age of 14, girls drop out of sport at twice the rate of boys. This is not for a lack of passion or skill; girls’ and women’s sports are often under-funded, under-supported and under-promoted.
The fact is girls and women have not been given the same opportunity. 40.8% of participants in sport are female, but did you know, just 6% of media coverage in Ireland goes to women’s sport? Her Sport has set out with the mission of creating more visibility, giving girls and women a voice in sport. This vision of equality is being proudly backed and supported by Life Style Sports, the first official partner of Her Sport, who share the mission of empowering women.
Her Sport and Life Style Sports are committed to empower every girl and woman, regardless of talent or ability, to achieve their full potential and find a way to be active with something they love, while enjoying a lifelong involvement in sport.
