Gender Equity in Sport and Recreation
This brochure primarily focuses on gender equity as it pertains to girls and young women in community recreation settings. It outlines goals, guidelines, and success factors for gender equitable programs.
Gender equity is defined as the process of allocating resources, programs and decision-making fairly. It does not mean providing the exact same programs to both girls and boys. Some girls' activities may be the same as those offered to boys, some may be altered, and some may be altogether different.
