It’s back to school for equality

It’s back to school for equality

By Cassandra Tanti - September 16, 2021

Monaco’s Committee for the Promotion and Protection of Women’s Rights has launched a new chapter of its equality campaign, this time focusing on sports and leisure activities.

The campaign is being illustrated by three disciplines, some of which are practiced mainly by boys or girls – gymnastics, rugby and playing the drums. It aims to raise awareness that there are still inequalities in the practice of certain activities but that it is possible to change this mentality.

The Committee’s campaign is based in particular on figures from Monaco’s statistics body IMSEE, which indicate that 66% of graduates in gymnastics are girls. Meanwhile, according to AS Monaco Rugby, 89% of rugby players are boys, and the Rainier III Academy of Music reports that only 15% of girls are enrolled in drum courses.

The equality campaign features posters and an animated video that incorporates this information with the slogan “Everyone has their place …”.

The campaign is being promoted on the website and the Committee’s social networks – Facebook, Instagram and Twitter – via the hashtag #equalityjagis.
