The 2003 Magglingen Declaration recommended the inclusion of women, girls and other marginalized groups in sports initiatives as a priority. In 1998 the 2nd World Conference on Women and Sport in Windhoek, Namibia made a “Call to Action” for increased cooperation between women’s organizations and recognized the role of sport in the advancement of girls and women.
