THIS GIRL CAN

 

This UWL Girl Can celebrates active UWL women who are doing their thing no matter how they do it, how they look or even how sweaty they get.

Launched in 2017/18 by UWL Netball, we have had more women being active than ever before – but our work isn’t done yet.

Women come in all shapes and sizes with all abilities and from all backgrounds. Some of us are expert sportswomen, some of us are beginners. It doesn’t matter. We’re just happy that you’re getting active. And if you’re still not sure that you can, we’re here to help you to figure out the way of getting active that’s right for you.

Research shows that many women are put off taking part in physical activity due to a fear of judgement – this might be about the way the look when they exercise, that they’re not good enough to join in or they should be spending more time on their families, studies or other priorities.

This Girl Can seeks to tell the real stories of women who get active or play sport in the way that’s right for them using images that show what activity really looks like in all its sweaty, red-faced, jiggly glory. We never judge and we don’t care what other people think.
