If you’re a Sports Fan you could pledge to go to at least 3 women’s games or events this year or build awareness of women in sport by sharing coverage online.
If you’re a Player you could pledge to introduce one or more girls to your sport.
If you’re a Coach you could pledge to give some expertise to developing a female team or athlete.
If you’re a Teacher you could pledge to give more opportunities or support to girls when it comes to sport, to inspire them to get involved or to take the class to a female game or competition.
