We are determined to get more people from under-represented groups including women and ethnic minorities taking part in sport and physical activity and to remove any barrier that prevents them from doing so. Government’s sport strategy ‘Sporting Future: A New Strategy for An Active Nation’ states that in future government will, via Sport England, support work designed to get more people from under-represented groups engaging in sport and physical activity and wherever possible, this focus on under-represented groups will run through all Sport England funding.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK’s ranking in the Global Gender Gap 2014 report is in part a reflection of rapid improvement from other countries. The UK also fares less well because of the measures used to inform the index; for example, economic participation and opportunity includes the difference in average yearly earnings of women and men, a measure that disadvantages the UK where many women choose to work part-time in order to balance family and work commitments. This measure also means the UK compares unfavourably to countries such as Rwanda and the Philippines where there are smaller differences in income between men and women but earnings are very much lower than in the UK.</p><p>Under this government, there are more women in work than ever before, more women-led business than ever before, and the gender pay gap, measured by hourly earnings, is the lowest since records began.</p> more like this
