This Girl Can is a celebration of active women who are doing their thing no matter how well they do it, how they look or even how red their face gets. This campaign was developed by Sport England in order to tackle the rising gender gap between the number of men compared to women who play sport and are physically active.

The aim of the national This Girl Can campaign was to show real women playing sport and being active.
