Save Women's Sport NZ has expanded to Save Women's Sport Australasia in response to the Pride in Sports Guidelines released last week. Despite women and girls being the group most adversely affected, they were not consulted.
Pride in Sports is a charity, a private organisation, that have taken action with wide-sweeping societal impact without any public consultation, community debate, media scrutiny or parliamentary oversight. In short they are operating outside the democratic process while implementing policies that affect over half the population.
The Pride in Sports Guidelines seek to profoundly change our conceptual understanding of women's sports and the purpose for which they were created - because males have a significant biological advantage over females, and this puts us at a substantially higher risk of injury and concussion.
Women and girls have the right to be consulted about policies that affect them.
