Gender equality

Gender equality sadly is still a very present issue in many industries, no exception for sports. In professional sports, as well as in sports for leisure, training and sports management, women are still underrepresented and there is a major wage gap. As FERW we encourage countries, federations and clubs that apply gender quota, standardise gendermainstreaming and take proactive measures, such as public debates, mentorship and role modeling.
