Gender Actions to increase

Women’s Participation in Sports –


Gap Women Project is a European program lead by the Union of Sport Federations of Catalonia (UFEC), co-funded by the European Commission with the aim of eliminating the gender gap in federated sport and promoting inclusive and sustainable sport.

GAP WOMEN is firmly committed to gender equality in sport and to the inclusion of women belonging to groups at risk of social exclusion (immigrants, refugees, physically/intellectually disabled, mentally ill, victims of gender violence, long-term unemployed, etc.).

Reason Why​

Traditionally, the participation of women in sport has had to face numerous barriers based on gender discrimination. Stereotypes such as that sports were harmful for women’s health, specially their reproductive health, fuelled gender-based discrimination in physical education and in recreational and competitive sport, sporting organizations and sport media.
