EWS conducts a survey on women in sport

During the European Youth and Sport Platform (EYSP) organised by ENGSO Youth in Sweden (1-4 June), the EWS started to collect data for its research on the situation of women in sport.

Researcher Angelica Saenz was in Stockholm to approach and discuss with the participants of the EYSP, with the support of EWS Vice-Chair Tarja Krum.

Ews Study

In 2022, the EWS committee of ENGSO started to research the status of equality within sport by acquiring more knowledge on LGBTQI+ athletes and coaches. This year, the work continues with a focus on the intersectionality aspect of the LGBTQI+ community in Europe and a specific attention is given to women in sports. 


The results will serve as a basis for further education, awareness raising and change campaigns in European grassroots sport to promote visibility, equality, and inclusion in sport.

ENGSO encourages all members and partners to disseminate this questionnaire to women athletes, coaches, sport coordinators, board members, and referees.

The participation takes up to around 6 minutes. We ensure that data processing will not allow any identification of individuals and secures anonymity of data. Lesbian, bisexual, trans, intersex, heterosexual, queer, demigender, and anyone who self-defines as a woman self-defined as woman, is welcome to respond.
