This Girl Can
This Girl Can is Sport England’s campaign to get women and girls active. It celebrates active women who are doing their thing no matter how they look, how well they do it or how sweaty they get. We support the campaign with This Girl Can Hampshire initiatives to get more local women wiggling, jiggling and moving.
In England, and in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, women are less active than men. This Girl Can aims to address the gap in male and female participation and get more women moving. We’re addressing this gap at a local level through the This Girl Can Hampshire network and other initiatives.
Sport England’s research showed that fears of being judged were stopping women from being active. This Girl Can helps women feel confident about participating by challenging the conventional idea of what exercise looks like.
Getting heart rates up
This Girl Can believes that there’s no right way to get active – if it gets your heart rate up, it counts. It celebrates women of all shapes, sizes, abilities and backgrounds who are out there being active in a way that suits them. In doing so, it hopes to encourage and inspire more women to join in.
