Fair Play for Girls in Sports
The Fair Play for Girls in Sports Project spurs schools and park and recreation departments to treat girls equally on and off the field, through litigation, technical assistance, training, and legislative advocacy.
Focusing particularly on girls of color and girls who live in low-income communities, this work promotes the health, educational achievement, and future employment opportunities of girls. Girls who play sports have higher self-esteem and greater physical fitness; they make healthier decisions about drugs, alcohol, and relationships; and they earn higher wages as adults in the workplace.
