"Our mission is to encourage increased opportunities and positive change for women and girls at all levels of involvement of sport and physical activity"
WomenSport International (WSI)
was formed in 1994 to meet the challenge of ensuring that sport and physical activity receive the attention and priority they deserve in the lives of women and girls. The main purpose of WSI is to serve as an umbrella organization that can bring about positive change for girls and women. Our advocacy is strongly based on current research.
