INTERNATIONAL UPDATE – FEB/MAR 2020

ANNOUNCEMENTS 
From the United Nations: Generation Equality Action Pack:
International Women’s Day

Women’s rights and gender equality are taking centre stage in 2020.

Twenty-five years since the adoption of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action—a progressive roadmap for gender equality—it’s time to take stock of progress and bridge the gaps that remain through bold, decisive actions.

This year’s theme for International Women’s Day (8 March) is, “I am Generation Equality: Realizing Women’s Rights”.

The Generation Equality campaign is bringing together people of every gender, age, ethnicity, race, religion and country, to drive actions that will create the gender-equal world we all deserve.

The toolkit, which will be distributed to each and every one of British Cycling’s 1845 affiliated clubs across the country, contains advice, tips and best-practice examples of making the cycling club environment as appealing as possible to prospective female members.

While huge strides have been made in encouraging more women into both competitive and recreational cycling, only 18% of overall affiliated club membership is currently female.

In launching the toolkit, British Cycling has highlighted the barriers which research shows still exist to female participation, and outlined ways in which clubs can overcome these and thus increase its female membership.
