Online event debates contemporary challenges for women’s participation in sports
Women’s participation in sports has attracted growing public interest in recent years. To talk about this topic, FGV CPDOC’s Laboratory for Sports Studies will hold a webinar on August 21, called “Women in Sport: Contemporary Challenges.” The event will be broadcast on FGV’s YouTube channel, starting at 2 pm.
In Brazil and across the world, women are expanding their presence in high-performance sports and also in a series of sport-related spaces, such as media coverage, stadiums and non-competitive sports activities.
Social demands for gender equality are resonating and being debated in the world of sport, including athletes, reporters, coaches, referees, managers and fans, among other stakeholders.
To evaluate this situation in the 21st century, discuss whether women are now genuine protagonists in this area and consider what concrete progress has been made, specialists Aira Bomfim and Mariana Pimentel will take part in this webinar. Their research on sports law and the social history of soccer has shed light on contemporary challenges facing women in the “country of soccer.” The moderator will be Professor Bernardo Buarque of FGV CPDOC.
