Whether it is the globally loved  football league or something closer home like  the kabaddi league, the sports sector today is looking at more women participation than ever before.

The benefits of sports are well-known. Apart from being a great indicator of a country’s progresses, on a personal level, it also teaches one commitment, respect, how to concentrate under stress, accept failure responsibly and be gracious winners.  However, to add to this, there are studies which show that girls who play sports are better at keeping their life organized, setting priorities, and budgeting time, they even perform better in maths and science. The  study found a strong correlation between girls participating in sports and scoring high in class. They also have higher self-esteem and provides a great medium to  break gender stereotype.

It is essential to inculcate the sports life right from a  young age as it defies patriarchal norms and helps establish gender equality in young minds

Today, we are at a stage where the spots sector is also setting an example in bridging the pay gap among the genders.

According to a Women’s Sport Week study, a total of 83% of sports now reward men and women equally.  But for the remaining disparity, players are speaking-up around the world to achieve complete balance in the gender pay gap and soon we will reach there!
