On Thursday, 7 March 2024, to celebrate International Women's Day 2024, the FEMM Committee, in collaboration with the National Parliaments, will organise an inter-parliamentary committee (ICM) meeting on the topic "Women in Sport".
Women in sport are fighting to ensure that their achievements are recognised equally to their male counterparts, breaking down stereotypes in certain sports that are typically seen as a man's world. Report on abuse scandals affecting women in sports in a variety of fields are well known, as well as the fight of women for equal financial rewards and status. We would like to look into the issues, as well as celebrate and acknowledge the strides taken and progress made in this field, especially in the context of next year's Paris Olympic Games. The values of sportsmanship, teamwork, as well as social responsibility through sport are respected worldwide.The purpose of the event is to exchange views with experts and representatives of national parliaments on the situation of women in sport today. The ICM will explore how women in sport have gained ground, yet still face specific hurdles, and discuss the way forward.Draft agenda soon to come.Location : European Parliament, room ANTALL 4Q12022 workshop "Women in Sport" Towards More Gender Equality in Sport, Recommendations and Action Plan From the High Level Group on Gender Equality in Sport (2022)Report on the implementation and relevance of the European Union Work Plan for Sport 2021-2024Female Chairs on the Boards of European National Sports Federations: A Comparative StudyWomen in the corporate governance of national sports federations: a European approachSource : © European Union, 2024 - EP
