Posted March 8th, 2017

A new study, released to correspond with International Women’s Day 2017 and published by the BBC(i), has found that ‘the number of women getting top jobs at UK sporting bodies is down by 6% since 2014.’

This comes ahead of the new government guidelines coming into effect on April 1, 2017 which state that “organisation’s must have a minimum of 30% women on their board or risk losing funding.’

According to the Independent(ii), the city of Melbourne has this week launched ‘a gender equality campaign to reduce unconscious bias…[as it] reinforces stereotypes and influences daily decisions and attitudes.’

Demonstrating that 50% of the city’s population is female, the campaign has begun by changing some pedestrian crossing sign figures from male to female.

Gender equality is an issue that is once again in the global spotlight and thousands of women, around the world, are expected to join the #BeBoldForChange movement on International Women’s Day and strike against the discrimination they face daily, at home and at work.
