RISE (Ready to Integrate Success and Empowerment)

A Peacemaking Project by Danica N.

What is the injustice we are solving?

gender inequality in sports

Our Compassionate Solution:

To solve this injustice of gender inequality in sports
we will address the idea of male dominance in sports enforced by society
by showcasing women in sports and their journeys and successes.

Our Project Plan:

Goals

  • Achieve equality between male and female sports

We will increase my / our compassion by...

We will increase our compassion by listening to the stories of female athletes and taking them into account when completing our project.

How will you show courage?

We will show courage by speaking up on this issue and trying to move toward change. We will use our voices to achieve equality and fairness in the athletic environment.

How will you collaborate with others?

We will incorporate female athletes opinions and stories when we are completing our project. We will work with female role models within our community, and will also talk to women who are not athletes and have experienced inequality in some aspect of their lives.

How will you know you are moving in the right direction? (What are specific ways you can measure your impact?)

We will know we are moving in the right direction because girls' sports will have the same amount of support as boys' sports.

Key Steps

  • We will first get in contact with multiple girls involved in different sports
  • Then we will hear about their stories and the inequality they may have experienced while playing a sport.
  • We will also talk to women in our community about inequality they might have experienced.
  • We will film an inspiring video that showcases these women and their accomplishments, despite the inequality they faced.
  • Lastly, we will share this video with our school.
