Creating a nation of active women: A framework for change

E-mail Print

In November 2007, the Women’s Sport and Fitness Foundation’s ground-breaking report, It’s time, revealed the extent of the crisis in women’s physical activity and committed to create this strategy to address the problem. The strategy is driven by the vision of a nation of active women, where sport and exercise is an integral part of everyday life. Today by contrast we live in a nation where 80% of women don’t even do enough physical activity to benefit their health. Half of young women feel society places greater pressure on them to be thin rather than healthy. Many are put off sport and exercise for life at school.

Creating a Nation of Active Women is the first strategy for national change in this vitally important area. It describes a compelling vision, outlines a new approach, makes practical recommendations and advocates setting challenging targets. It provides a framework, comprising three key imperatives, for those who develop policy and design, and who deliver and promote sport and exercise for women and girls.

Editor's comments - [  In November 2007, the Women’s Sport and Fitness Foundation (WSFF) published It’s time, the ground-breaking research study which drew widespread public attention to the crisis in women’s sport and fitness. Since then, recognition of the issue of women’s inactivity has been gathering momentum across sport, media and Government, but until now, there has been no single, authoritative source of guidance and advice on how to address the crisis.  ]  Reference this?Cryer, J.
