The Windhoek call for action

E-mail Print

The 400 delegates from 74 countries present at the 2nd World Conference on Women and Sport held in Windhoek, Namibia, 19-22 May 1998 called for action throughout the world to further the development of equal opportunities for girls and women to participate fully in sport in its broadest sense.

This call reflected an overwhelming desire on the part of all delegates to seek greater cooperation and co-ordination between the many agencies and organizations responsible for women’s issues, and recognized and stressed the importance that sport can and should play in the advancement of girls and women.
