Fighting women harassment and discrimination in sports ...
We will develop a community of female athletes, professionals, sport managers and policy makers in Europe to actively prevent and counter violence, abuse, harassment, and discrimination against female athletes in key sports environments, providing them with knowledge, education, and practical tools specifically designed by the project.
More concretely, the following actions will be developed together by the 8 partner countries of the EWA consortium (Italy, Bulgaria, Turkey, Greece, Belgium, Lithuania, Latvia, Cyprus):
Creation of a network of Ambassadors of Equal Rights in Sports: a group of female athletes selected and trained during the project, whose mission will be to empower other female athletes in Europe (whether they are beginners, amateurs or professionals) as well as sport professionals (executives, coaches, health professionals…) to fight the chauvinist culture in all sport environments;
Implementation of a grass-roots awareness-raising campaign through different (social) media aiming at acknowledging and valorising the role of women in sports;
Creation of a Petition that will be submitted to the EU, in order to encourage relevant authorities to implement efficient measures.
