Women and Sport, Yesterday and Today exhibition
The current situation of female athletes often reflects the cultural and political position of women in the world. Even though considerable progress has been achieved in many fields, women still face numerous problems. Demythologising women’s participation in sports competitions opens the way to improvements and success by changing perceptions about female athletes.
Third International Film Festival
Parallel to the exhibition, from 6 to 10 March the ILO cinema is hosting the 3rd International Film Festival on women in sport. It is celebrating International Women’s Day by focusing on the situation of women in the sports world. The fictional films selected tell the story of female athletes around the world.
