“Sports embodies human development; it is an integral part of national culture. Therefore, women must enjoy equal access to it. By offering women in the region more opportunities to participate in sports, we benefit everyone. Human capital is developed, the wealth of athletic talent women possess finds expression on local and global platforms, and their participation in competitions brings their countries worldwide recognition and respect. Also, sports have been one of the main bridges between nations and cultures; a cementing force in global relationships. There is so much women can do to accomplish these goals.”
