About We Are Onside
We Are ONSIDE is a series of gatherings and conversations that explore the intersection of feminism and advocacy in the sport for gender justice movement. The aim is to bring together feminist voices from the global south to better understand and highlight the work being done on the ground in local communities and learn more about a cross-sector feminist movement that reimagines sport, transforming intersectional discrimination, oppression and inequalities in order to advance gender justice in local and international sports systems and structures.
