What is This Girl Can?

This Girl Can celebrates active women who are doing their thing no matter how they do it, how they look or even how sweaty they get. Launched in 2015, the campaign has successfully persuaded nearly three million women to get more active – and the campaign continues.

Sport England discovered that 75% of 14-40 year old women in England want to exercise more, but the fear of judgement was stopping them.

This Girl Can will tackle these fears and a host of other issues to empower more women to give sport a go.
