Challenge

Women's and girls' rights are violated daily. Where gender policies exist, they are frequently not enforced. Gender inequity in sport mirrors societal discrimination. Women and girls face multiple social and cultural barriers to their participation in sport and their community. Gender inequities exist in some form in every country - from heightened vulnerability in refugee populations, forced marriage and sex trafficking, to unequal pay, female objectification, and domestic violence.

Solution

Sport has the capacity to educate and empower women and girls outside the classroom. ASK for Choice uses sport to bring gender policies to life throughout communities and create safe spaces to question harmful religious, traditional, and cultural practices. CAC's strategic year-round mentorship on curriculum and policy development generates pathways to advance women's participation, leadership and rights in and through sport.

Long-Term Impact

ASK for Choice develops the Attitudes, Skills, and Knowledge for women, men, and communities to make collective, responsible Choices for their futures. ASK for Choice enhances personal and community responsibility and produces locally-owned and relevant gender equity initiatives. This will reduce inequality on a global scale using the Coaches Across Continents network. ASK for Choice has the capacity to reach 1 million girls from diverse backgrounds by educating 10,000 leaders in the program.
