About This Report:

Women in Sport knows that sport gives girls and women resilience, courage and self-belief. We also know that gender stereotypes hold girls and women back from sport, and in life. In this study we explored where gender stereotyping begins so we can challenge and inspire to create lasting change for women and girls in sport and society. This document summarises a major research programme we ran into girls' early experiences of sport and physical activity and the attitudes and influences that shape perceptions at this young age.
