Windhoek Call for Action

Windhoek Call for Action

The Windhoek Call for Action builds on the Brighton Declaration on Women and Sport and links in to relevant international instruments, especially the Beijing Platform for Action and the Convention for the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women. The Brighton Declaration focuses on principles and awareness:

  • the principles that should underlie the development of sport so that it includes and reflects the needs of women
  • the need for national and international awareness on these issues

The Windhoek Call for Action moves from statements of principle and raising awareness to action.
