This Girl Can

#ThisGirlCan is a Sport England campaign that exists to empathise with all women and inspire them to exercise regularly. We understand that the fear of judgement prevails and that factors such as time, money and motivation stop many women from exercising. That’s why we are actively supporting #ThisGirlCan.

This campaign is a celebration of active women who are doing their thing no matter how they look, how well they do it, or even how sweaty they get. Since 2015, #ThisGirlCan has helped women overcome practical and emotional barriers to being active that can hold many back. 

Listen to Active Cornwall discuss what it’s like to be a woman in the world of sport and physical activity, the barriers we’ve faced, the opportunities we’ve had and how we can better support women with physical activity.
