Gender discrimination in sports has long been a controversial topic due to unequal wage, unequal viewership, and unequal opportunities between men and women. Unfortunately, gender discrimination is still an issue in the 21 st century. However, we strongly believe that we, collectively, men and women, can do more about gender equality supporting the promotion of women in sports. Finally, gender stereotyping preserves the dominant social position of males and subordinate position of females in sport, which many people in society would like to continue. We think there's room for girls in sport, boys in sport, and boys and girls together in sport, in all kinds of sports - and that our culture is enriched because of it.
