This Girl Can inspires women and girls to get active

We’re supporting VicHealth’s This Girl Can campaign again in 2021, encouraging women in Manningham to get active during the week of Monday 22 March to Sunday 28 March.

Research shows that half of Australian women don’t get enough exercise. A big part of women not trying new activities or getting involved in sport is a fear of being judged or not feeling fit enough to start. Indeed, twice as many women than men put off getting active because they’re worried about what other people think.

This Girl Can is about celebrating women getting active, regardless of their background, ability, age or body shape. The campaign aims to empower women by helping them focus on how getting active feels, rather than on what people may think.

During This Girl Can week, sport and recreation clubs and facilities in Manningham will be offering free or low cost activities for women and girls, to encourage them to get active and have some fun in a supported and friendly environment.
