WOMEN of the world have stood up to inequality in recent years — yet female sport is still overlooked. The gender pay gap and the recent #MeToo ­controversies have called for an end to gender­related biases. Football legend Stephane Roche (centre) with (left to right) Louise Quinn (Arsenal), Twitter’s Anne Kiely, former Cork camogie and football star Rena Buckley, Dublin footballer Philly McMahon and Joy Neville former Ireland international and Elite IRFU Rugby Referee Director General of RTE Dee Forbes Now the 20×20 campaign, presented by the Federation of Irish Sport, is on a mission to address the imbalance when it comes to women’s sport. The movement aims to encourage greater coverage, attendance and participation in women’s sport, with RTE among those to commit to do their bit to level the playing field. Another media partner, Twitter, yesterday hosted an event at its EMEA headquarters which focused on the need for young girls to be able to see more women’s sport on their screens. Here DEE FORBES, Director General of RTE, explains why girls ‘can’t be it if they can’t see it’… I’M very proud RTE have Joanne Cantwell fronting The Sunday Game after 40 years on the air. Jacqui Hurley is centre stage on our weekend sport schedule on Radio 1, and we have a Women’s World Cup starting on RTE and TG4 next month, which is a huge first. It’s the first time the Women’s World Cup was on primetime television and it’s free for all. That’s really quite deliberate. It’s hugely important to know that RTE is not only media partners to the 20×20 campaign, we are actively doing our bit. The campaign is a fantastic initiative to shine a light on women’s sport. It’s about increasing media coverage, attendance and participation at sport. CHANGED RADICALLY Earlier this year, on International Women’s Day, I felt it totally appropriate on RTE2’s behalf to remind people that we had pledged to be the media partner for this campaign but also to pledge my own commitment. On that day I pledged that I would attend more women’s sports going forward. In a wider context, as a society and a people, how we talk about, think about and react to women has changed radically — and about time. While we have some way to go, change has been real and it’s been necessary. What was once acceptable in terms of language, treatment and representation is no longer tolerated. Women and men have risen up in increasing numbers against inequalities that had become normal. Now, within that evolution and revolution, we have seen issues rise to the top of the agenda with incredible rapidity and force. One of these issues, of course, is women in sport. When you think about it, every aspect of the challenges facing women — representation, language, equality and more — are crystallised in how women are perceived, treated and valued in the world of sport. I am someone with a lifelong love of sport. I’m genuinely excited by the potential of this campaign and the momentum and urgency it creates. SOMETHING IS HAPPENING The campaign recognises that the messages we’ve been sending to girls have been negative, stifling and uninspiring. Rightly, this campaign calls us all out to challenge the systems that led us to a point where the norm is women’s sports are second class. Where girls drop out and lose interest in sport in their teens in particular and where women in sport are paid a fraction of their male counterparts. We at RTE called ourselves out and have responded. Not only will we increase our coverage, women’s sport will account for 20 per cent of our sports coverage by 2020. That’s real. The Women’s World Cup is proof of that but across the summer and into 2020 that will continue. We’ve committed to engaging in a call to arms. Something is happening. There’s a wave of real change afoot. RTE needs to be a role model. It’s important that when RTE and TG4 come together for the Women’s World Cup that talented women are front and centre in our sports coverage. It’s important voices like Louise Quinn, Emma Byrne, Aine O’Gorman, Brid Stack, Ursula Jacob, Cora Staunton, Lynne Cantwell, Stephanie Roche and many more will be seen and heard on RTE as the year goes on. It’s important that RTE will join other broadcasters across Europe in campaigning on this issue. We’re all doing what we can to drive this campaign and it’s having a real impact. Now just a little story . . . My niece is an avid football and camogie player. She was eight years old at the time. [article-rail-section title=”MOst read in news” posts_category=”2″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] She was getting ready to go to school and take her kit for training in the afternoon. She came back and said, “Mum, I’m not sure I can keep going. It’s tough and I’m getting dirty.” Fast forward a few weeks and she said, “Guess what Auntie Dee, I’m going to all my training. You know why? I’ve seen Anna Geary on Dancing with the Stars and I know I can play football and be glamorous. Dee Forbes, far left, has vowed to ensure women’s sports will account for 20% of RTE’s sports coverage by 2020
