We welcome you to the launch of ShePower Sport
New year. New decade. A transformation in sport. Be part of the ShePower Sport movement. Starting today, we will be posting new content that is relevant to female athletes once a week. Join us today!
Growing female athletes confidence
The rise of women in sport is about confidence. Confident women transform sport. Our goal is to grow female athletes’ confidence in a global community of athletes, experts and professionals. The ShePower Sport platform provides a safe space to ask questions and tell one’s story to like-minded athletes across the globe, share success models, peer advice, and skills. Experts give tips on health, performance, clean sport and integrity. Let’s also close the gender data gap in sports medicine. If you want to help improve the care and treatment of female athletes, we will help you connect with researchers in your region.
Excited to meet you!
Behind ShePower Sport are two sport medical professionals, Yoko Dozono and Katharina Grimm. We have ourselves experienced inequality in sports and increasingly recognized the frustration among female athletes and their unrealized potential.
With our combined global sporting background, some of which include Director of Medical affairs at Aspetar, working in Medicine & Science at World Anti-Doping Agency, heading the FIFA medical office, and an international level athlete, we are strong advocates for clean sports and female athletes’ health and rights. Check us out in the“About us” section!
From the ancient to the modern Olympic Games and to the first World Championships in different sports, sport has always been a male domain. During recent decades, female athletes have achieved a lot of change in sport.
Still, today, female athletes at all levels of performance receive less attention, less appreciation, less support, less care, and less compensation than male athletes, while being more often exploited, harassed, and abuse.
Men are over represented in sports science and medicine. Sports media’s coverage worldwide is 90% on male sports. On the Forbes 100 best-paid athletes list in 2017 and 2019 was one woman. In 2018, there was none.
