GAP Women project aims to eliminate the gender gap in sport

By ISCA and GAP Women

Did you know there is a significant difference between men’s and women’s federation memberships in 90% of sports in most European countries? The GAP Women project is aiming to eliminate the gender gap in sport, particularly among women aged 18-50 and groups at risk of social exclusion (immigrants, refugees, physically/intellectually disabled, mentally ill, and victims of gender violence). 

Now the project has launched its website, which will feature campaign resources to celebrate International Women’s Day on 8 March and an online learning course.
The campaign is aimed at organisations, federations, clubs and public authorities to urge them to commit to promoting equality, social integration, sustainability and economic development in sport.

ISCA’s Saska Benedicic Tomat, Laura-Maria Tiidla and Elena Garcia Morales joined the project partners, including 23 women leaders in sport, for the kick-off meeting in Barcelona in September.

The Unió de Federacions de Catalunya (UFEC) is leading the Erasmus+ supported Cooperation Partnership as part of a ten-partner consortium including the International Council of Sport Science and Physical Education (Germany), Sport and Citizenship – Sport et Citoyenneté (France), International Sport and Culture Association (Denmark), European Non‐Governmental Sports Organisation (Sweden), Maiêutica – Cooperativa de Ensino Superior (Portugal), European Table Tennis Union (Luxembourg), Margherita Sport e Vita (Italy), Federació Catala d’Activitats Subaquàtiques (Catalonia), and La Calle es Tuya (Spain).
