Over the last few months, Sport England’s This Girl Can campaign went viral.
It dominated TV screens and billboard sites across England. Its images of real women and girls jiggling, wiggling and having fun, generated headlines across the world.
Now we want you to help us bring the attitude and sass behind This Girl Can into YOUR school. We want your girls to feel that they can, too!
You can register your activities on the This Girl Can website.

This Girl Can Posters:
Every local authority secondary school in England has been posted four complimentary A1 sized posters for display in schools, to highlight the This Girl Can campaign and its important images/messages.
These posters have been delivered to schools today, addressed to the ‘Teacher in charge of PSHE’. Please seek these out and help us to raise the profile of the campaign.
In South Leicestershire, we have our very own Girls Active Lifestyles project targeted at both primary and secondary aged girls, providing funding for schools to deliver several weeks of fitness based activity for girls, and big events held at local leisure centres bringing girls together for a fantastic day of girls-only fun and fitness. These projects will be happening again next academic year, and your school will be sent information on how to get involved over the coming months.
