This Girl Can

7 - 13th March 2022

The ‘This Girl Can’ campaign was originally created to show that women should be able to get active or play sport and feel comfortable doing so no matter what ability, shape or size.

Research shows that the proportion of women putting off physical exercise for fear of judgement hugely outnumbers men, as well as the numbers of women carrying on physical exercise after school age being significantly lower than men.

We are running this campaign week for Aberystwyth students to show them that their fear of judgement should not hold them back from taking part in any activity. As well as this we believe that there should be an equal platform for women in all sectors of work and leisure activities.

We have created our own take on the ‘This Girl Can’ campaign as we want to highlight other areas where there is a disparity between the numbers of men and women present, such as owning and managing businesses or entering into the STEM industry.

We hope that the week will be encouraging and empowering for women across the university and show that women are welcome in all of these environments and should not be put off. Keep an eye out on our website and social media channels closer to the time to see our calendar of events and opportunities for the week!

See you there!
