This Girl Can

A celebration of active women up and down the country who are doing their thing

This Girl Can

This Girl Can is a celebration of the active women who are doing their thing no matter how they do it, how they look or even how sweaty they get. This Girl Can tells the real story of women who exercise and play sport. They come in all shapes and sizes and all levels of ability.

If you are wondering if you should join or carry on, this campaign demonstrates that it really doesn’t matter if you are rubbish or completely brilliant. The most important thing is you are a woman and you are doing something and it should be celebrated.

What is it?

This Girl Can is a national campaign developed by Sport England and a wide range of partnership organisations.

It’s a celebration of active women up and down the country who are doing their thing no matter how well they do it, how they look or even how red their face gets.

Leisure World is supporting the campaign and encourages women to be more active.

What did they find?

Sport England’s research revealed a huge difference in the number of men and women playing sport. It’s not because females don’t want to get active – they are afraid to exercise because of fear of judgement on appearance, ability or how they chose to spend time on themselves.

Sport England also found that by every measure fewer women than men play sport regularly. In some other European countries, this disparity doesn’t exist.

These findings were the driving force behind their campaign’s creation, which aims to empower women and encourage more to get active.
