Steps should be taken to educate people and at least sports person should get appreciation for their achievement.

Sister Dhara,

I agree with you that most parents don't always encourage their girls to do well in sports. We've the power to make the difference for the next generations. Sports is gender-neutral but our societies tend not see that way.

Hi Jessica ,

sexual harassment is also one of the issue that keep the girls away from the sports and one should think over it.

In California, USA at my school, girls started to drop out of sports at young ages. Many girls believe that would be "undesirable" if they got too muscular or played sports. It is a big problem because I feel empowered when I score a goal or get to the top of a wall(I play football and rock climb).

Being involved in athletics can have a profound impact on all individuals and teach them about important life skills, such as teamwork and good sportsmanship, often not taught in the classroom in itself. It shouldn't matter what gender an individual is to determine whether or not they can participate in sports. Sports are enjoyable activities that should be shared by all people.
