IWG Reports

The International Working Group on Women and Sport (IWG) was formed out of the first World Conference on Women and Sport in Brighton, UK, in May 1994.

Quadrennial conferences since 1994 have occurred in Namibia, Canada, Japan, Australia and Finland – each producing a Progress Report on the four years of work between each conference.

Between 2012-2014, the AWF was part of an international research team which produced the 2014 IWG Progress Report. The first stage of the project analysed and reviewed IWG progress reports from 1994-2010.

The second stage of the project sough to account for the progress made for women and sport globally since 2010. The work was presented during a keynote session at the 6th IWG World Conference on Women and Sport in Helsinki, Finland, in June 2014 and produced as two publications.
