To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, what steps the Government is taking to reduce (a) sexism and (b) misogyny in sport.
There is no place for sexism and misogyny in sport. It is vital that sports continue to work together to tackle this issue and act on reports of sexism and indeed discrimination of any kind.
We are determined to get more girls and women playing sport and want to see more women in leadership positions across sport too - whether playing, coaching, on the medical and support side, or at board level. This is something we set out in our sport strategy, Sporting Future. Sport England’s This Girl Can campaign is continuing to encourage women and girls to take up sport and physical activity and UK Sport and Sport England’s Code for Sport Governance includes a target of at least 30% gender diversity on boards.
