FIAS launched today a video campaign addressing gender equity in sport, showcasing examples of women that play important roles in the development of SAMBO in different parts of the world.

The campaign is not merely a call for the increase of female participation and space, is it more: a reminder that women have been present across different functions for several years and they are also responsible for how sport presents itself nowadays. Not because of their gender, but for the individual skills and efforts they brought to the table.

FIAS Women Commission has been working closely with SAMBO athletes and administrators to identify what could be done to enhance the female sport. The Commission’s chairperson, Monique Athanase, has joined global sport leaders in a meeting of the International Working Group on Women and Sport in Botswana last October. Monique is also in talks with the organization for FIAS to join other sport entities as a signatory of the Brighton Plus Helsinki 2014 Declaration on Women and Sport
