History of WSW - Women In Sport

History of WSW

Women’s Sport Week is back for its third year!

Here’s how and why it came about.


Launched in June 2015, Women’s Sport Week is an initiative of the Department for Culture, Media & Sport supported by the wider sport industry.

Women’s Sport Week was designed and launched to celebrate, raise awareness and increase the profile of women’s sport across the UK. Focusing on media coverage, elite competition, grassroots participation and workforce, the week featured original and shared content across local and national media, supported by Government and the wider sport industry, as the nation looked ahead to an exciting summer for women’s sport.
