The Brighton Declaration on Women and Sport

The Brighton Declaration on Women and Sport

To date, 419 organizations worldwide have been moved to endorse the Brighton Declaration on Women and Sport.

Endorsing the Declaration is an excellent way to affirm the organization’s commitment to gender equality and also signals an appreciation for the ten principles set forth by the Declaration.

The Declaration is meant to complement all sporting, local, national and international charters, laws, codes, rules and regulations relating to women or sport.

On June 14, 2014, the participants of the 6th IWG World Conference on Women and Sport unanimously adopted the updated Brighton Plus Helsinki 2014 Declaration on Women and Sport as part of the conference legacy document Helsinki calls the world of sport to “Lead the Change, Be the Change”. The legacy document also includes the second annex Conclusions and Recommendations of the 6th IWG World Conference on Women and Sport ”Lead the Change, Be the Change”.

Endorsing the original Brighton Declaration is no longer possible. To read more about the Brighton Plus Helsinki 2014 Declaration on Women and Sport, click here.
