February 1, 2023, marks the 37th Annual National Girls and Women in Sports Day

February 1, 2023 – 37th Annual National Girls & Women in Sports Day (NGWSD) is an annual day of observance held during the first week of February to acknowledge the accomplishments of female athletes.

This National day is an opportunity to recognize the influence of sports participation for women and girls and honour the progress and continuing struggle for equality for women in sports.

2023 marks the 51st anniversary of Title IX, a federal right law signed on June 23, 1972.

This law stated, “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity.”

Particularly, Title IX regulations are most well-known for their impact on expanding opportunities for girls and women in sports.

National Girls and Women in Sports Day‘s Wikipedia describes President Ronald Reagan’s involvement to sign Proclamation 5606 which declared February 4, 1987, as Nation Women in Sports Day.

Reports show, in 1972, just over 300,000 women and girls played college and high school sports in the United States. At this point, female athletes received 2% of college athletic budgets and athletic scholarships for women were not accessible.

In fact, by 2012, the number of girls participating in high school sports nationwide increased to more than 3 million. More than 190,000 women were competing in intercollegiate sports—six times as many as in 1972.

Tribute to National Girls & Women in Sports Day 

See what female athletes are saying about National Girls & Women in Sports Day. Also, an important and inspirational message has been shared by Army West Point’s Stephanie Dolehyde, as quoted below.

“Athletics are a major component to the cadet experience here at West Point and provide some of the most essential leadership skills needed to serve in the United States Army. My name is Stephanie Dolehyde and I am a cadet athlete on the women’s tennis team and serving as the current brigade student-athlete advisory committee officer.”

“National Girls and Women In Sports Day is important to me because it honors the legacy that female athletes have left and helps us recognize the power of sport.”

 

“Sport means so much to me and all the men and women who have competed, sweat, bled, cried, laughed, and smiled with their coaches, with their teammates. Sport has taught us to be coachable, taught us to be good teammates, has taught us to have sportsmanship and respect for others, and has taught us to love and fight for something greater than ourselves. “

“Sport has been such a large part of education and I am blessed for the impact that it has made on me today. I am grateful for all the women who have paved the way before me to allow and encourage women to compete in sports.”

History of Girls & Women in Sports

A brief look into Canadian Women’s Sports in History as we honour the 37th Annual National Girls & Women in Sports Day

Women’s Sports in the Victorian Age

While men’s athletics clubs were on the rise as the 19th century advanced, women had fewer opportunities in the world of sports. Canadian women, who had money and time, found opportunities to participate in recreational activities since women at the time were excluded from many sporting activities. Here is a list of recreational activities Canadian women participated in:

  • sleigh and toboggan parties
  • snowshoeing
  • iceboating
  • skating (this included fancy skating, known today as figure skating)
  • picnics
  • croquet
  • boating
  • fishing
  • horseback riding
  • fox hunting
  • walking matches
  • roller skating or “parlour” skating on hockey rinks which were covered with wooden floors for the summer season
