Winchester Student Union is involved with the, 'BUCS This Girl Can Week', campaign because it’s all about celebrating female representation in sport. This Girl Can celebrates active women who are doing their thing no matter how they do it, how they look or even how sweaty they get!
At Winchester, our institution is predominantly female (our ratio of women to men being 70:30), so we grabbed this campaign opportunity with open arms in order to show off our amazing Women Teams, Female players and to promote participation in physical activity to all; to dissolve the gender stereotypes that unfortunately still exist in the sport industry.
We support this campaign because we positively acknowledge that women come in all shapes and sizes with all abilities from all backgrounds. No woman should ever be defined by their gender, ability, strength or in any other category for that matter.
We hope that what we have created a week that has encouraged more females to take part in physical activity, and has gained the support of all of our student body.
