In line with the European guidelines in the field of sport, the aim of the project, promoted by the French Alice Milliat Foundation, is to promote women's sport at all levels, fostering social inclusion and equal opportunities for women. The idea of ​​the project is based on results and studies that show how in Europe women in general practice less sport and physical activity than men, while participation in sports practices and activities is an important mechanism of emancipation and social inclusion. The project actions therefore aim to establish a European Network for the promotion of women's sport, with particular attention to women at risk of social exclusion or victims of racial discrimination. The project is co-funded by the European Union under the Erasmus Plus - Collaborative Partnership.
