A male-dominated field like sport leaves little room for women and girls: in the media, but also in terms of participation, infrastructure and financial support. This is all the more true of those who do not belong to the so-called “majority society”. Female athletes with a migration or refugee history, female athletes who belong to minorities or BPoC (Black and People of Color) are confronted with racism and sexism in sport. How barriers can be broken down and women empowered, how sport can be opened up to all, will be discussed at the conference.
Migrant and minority women experience discrimination on the basis of both gender and migrant or ethnic background. As a response to this reality, the European Sport Inclusion Network (SPIN Network) developed the project “Sport Inclusion of Migrant and Minority Women” (SPIN Women). SPIN Women aims to encourage social inclusion and equal opportunities for women and girls with an immigrant or ethnic minority background through increased participation in sports.
