ASK for Choice: Sport Bringing Gender Policies to Life

Commitment by

Coaches Across Continents

In 2015, Coaches Across Continents (CAC) committed, in partnership with Hogan Lovells and other partners, to expand their recently piloted female empowerment curriculum into a new community intervention, ASK for Choice, which uses sport for social impact to bring gender policies to life. CAC will engage communities in learning about gender issues through their ASK for Choice on-field curriculum and will empower participants to question cultural certainties, identify potential solutions, and work towards context specific changes in both policy and practice, thus deepening local ownership of outcomes. Additionally, research by Hogan Lovells on existing gender policies will inform program partners on what exists and what is needed for policy development for female empowerment within their community. By 2018, CAC aims to work in 30 countries across five continents.
