In 1978, UNESCO declared sports and physical activity as a human right. But, still today Sports is just a dream for most of the women across the globe. Woman Athletes are getting less salary/prize money compared to Men in every sports. Sexual exploitation against women athletes is rising. Incidence of lifestyle diseases increasing among women due to lack of physical activity. Only a healthy woman can create a healthy next generation.
Inspired by the words of Susan B. Anthony, American suffragist (“Bicycling has done more to emancipate women than any one thing in the world”) and the deeds of DipikaPallikkal, Indian Squash player (5 year long Historical fight for equal pay and its success), we are planning to conduct HER GAMES 2017 in Ernakulam (2017 August 14 to 18).
HER GAMES, the exclusive Olympics for women will be an annual sports & networking event for women from all strata of life. The objectives of HER GAMES are (1)Give every woman opportunity to play, even within their present limits for fitness and fun, (2) Empower women physically, mentally and financially through sports, (3) Ensure equal pay and prize for women in every sports, (4) Create public places for women to play, and (5) Raise funds to meet the above mentioned objectives.
The major competitions will be on Hopscotch, Skipping & Knucklebones, the games which are generally labelled as her games. We are planning to conduct a curtain raiser programme for HER GAMES 2017 on August 14, 2016, Oberon Mall in Ernakulam.
