Using a shell removal for the issue and supplying facilities and resources these programs can create the basis for a more assured and just sports scenario.

Nevertheless, the achievement of complete gender equality in sports is still one of the biggest remaining challenges. Concerns like gender inequalities, biases, and lack of investment chains remain, hence a long-term ambition is required by all players to attain equality.
