Data and learning: Gender

We know that women and girls are less likely to be active than men, with women facing a number of practical and emotional barriers preventing them from being as active as they would like to be. It is important to recognise and understand the specific barriers women and girls face, which include fear of judgement and a lack of time, so that we can work to address these barriers when redesigning moving back into daily life. Here you will find the latest research related to the physical activity and sport levels, motivations and barriers related to gender.

There are some stark gender inequalities in Greater Manchester. Statistics tell us that men are more active than women. In Greater Manchester, the gap between inactive males (25.5%) and inactive females (27.9%) is 2.4%. There was a slight gap decrease of 0.8% between November 2015-2016 and November 2017-2018. However, there is still much to be done.
