I love the This Girl Can campaign. It is a celebration of active women who are doing their thing no matter how well they do it, how they look or even how red their face gets. Developed by Sport England, to help women overcome the fear of judgement that is stopping too many women and girls from joining in.
Even by their standards though the new advert is awesome:
The ad uses extracts from Maya Angelou’s Phenomenal Women poem alongside real women taking part in sport.
Young Women: Your Call is a national day conference running on Saturday 23rd April at Coventry Cathedral and hosted by the Diocese of Coventry. It aims to be a creative day of teaching, listening, exploring, praying and working out more of a sense of God’s call for young women. It is aimed at women aged roughly 16-35 and is suitable for women at all stages of discernment – be that the first dip of a toe in the water, or further along the more formal vocations channels.
They would love to welcome young women from across the country – it is free to register and attend the day which includes lunch and refreshments and hopefully lots to take away.
Participants can register directly by using this link http://ow.ly/WHFmm or look out in the coming weeks for a facebook page and twitter handle #YWYourCall.
