Gender mainstreaming in sport - Recommendation CM/Rec(2015)2 and explanatory memorandum

Gender mainstreaming in sport - Recommendation CM/Rec(2015)2 and explanatory memorandum

Sport has traditionally been, and still is in many aspects, a male domain. The dynamics of gender relations affect the overall participation of women and men in sport and can result in unequal access to sporting activities and to responsibilities within sport. In order to achieve de facto equality between women and men in sport, the structural character of gender inequality must be addressed by adopting a strategy of gender mainstreaming and by involving all the relevant institutions and participants in its implementation.

This recommendation encourages member states to review their legislation in order to bring the gender mainstreaming strategy into public sport and physical education policies and programmes. A series of measures is set out in the appendix to guide member states when revising legislation or drawing up national action plans.
