Limerick Sports Partnership fully support and are a proud member of the 20x20 campaign.
ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN: (From 20x20.ie website)
20x20 is about creating a cultural shift in our perception of girls and women in sport. By increasing visibility of women’s sport it will become a greater part of who we are and what we follow. There is already so much to celebrate when it comes to women’s sport in Ireland but there isn’t enough noise. The initiative seeks to change the subliminal bias in the Irish psyche that exists around girls and boys, or women and men, when it comes to sport. The names of the initiative for 20% by 2020, there are the targets the campaign has set:
- 20% more of women in sport by the end of 2020
- 20% more female whether at player, coach, referee or administration level by the end of 2020
- 20% more at women’s games and events by the end of 2020
This isn’t a ‘women for women’ initiative, it’s ‘all of society for all of society’. If sport is good, which we know it to be, then more sport is better. If we all play, we all win. 20×20 is asking all sections of Irish society to show their stripes and pledge one small action to increase the visibility of women’s sport in Ireland because if she can’t see it, she can’t be it.
