Increase in female presence in Paralympic sports, according to international research

A number of African nations have been inspired to increase the number of women participating in Para sports, following a landmark gathering in Botswana. The International Working Group on Women and Sport (IWG) is the most important global gathering for women in sport. It hosted the World Conference on Women and Sport from 17-20 May, featuring a workshop organised by the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) Women in Sport Committee (WiSC).

The IPC workshop was designed to provide National Paralympic Committes (NPCs) with key qualification information for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games with a focus on female athletes, and to discuss the challenges in Africa for growing participation among women.
