Join us (the Office for Women in Sport and Recreation) to celebrate International Women's Day 2019.
This Girl Can – Victoria is here to celebrate and support Victorian women (yep, you!) embracing physical activity in a way that suits you. Whether it’s a little or a lot, what matters is getting some movement into your day.
While many of us know that exercising is important for our physical and mental health, that doesn’t change the fact that half of us aren’t getting enough exercise each week.
Why? Victorian women have told us that a big part of not trying new activities or getting involved in sport is a fear of being judged, or not being fit enough to start. Not to mention, twice as many women than men put off getting active because they’re worried about what other people think – how unfair is that? Sports, gyms and moving your body are for everybody (literally, every body).
So we’re banding together to put a red-hot stop to this.
Find out more about the campaign here.
VicHealth have also designed this practical guide to give you advice, suggestions, hints and tips to help more women and girls in your local area to get active.
