New insight!

Today, we're launching our latest insight report, Understanding Women's Lives. This research, which we've been testing with the sport sector for the past 18 months, identifies 6 key values which influence women's behaviours; our report is here to demonstrate how sport can express these values in order to make them more attractive to women and girls.

Featuring case studies from the FA, England Athletics and British Tennis, we're pleased to be able to show how sport can better Understand Women's Lives.

Throughout this week, we'll be using social media to share examples of each of the values working for different women in different sports using ‪#‎MySportingValue‬. We'd love to hear yours too!

In the meantime, read the report and find out more information on the research
