Overview

Sexual harassment, media coverage, budget disparities, gender norms, violence and hazing are examples of issues that female athletes face, and they demonstrate how much work remains to be done to achieve equity in sports. This year's Women Leading Change Celebration theme is "Gender Equity in Sports." The event takes place on April 26, also known as 50/50 Day, a day for people to engage in conversation about working towards a more gendered balanced world.
