Throughout September 2018, Southampton City Council is running a localised ‘This Girl Can Southampton’ campaign to promote and encourage women to get active.

With help from our partners, we will be showcasing inspiring stories of local women, who take part in Southampton based classes, courses, clubs or just like to exercise alone.

Alongside this, we will be promoting women’s only sessions to encourage more participation with physical activity.

The idea behind our campaign originated from a young woman, Hafsah, who attends Southampton’s Youth Forum. Hafsah wants all women to have the opportunity to participate in physical activity no matter what their ability, background or beliefs.

Our campaign is also inspired by the national This Girl Can campaign, developed by Sport England.

We want to proudly shout that whatever your shape, ability or experience - sport and exercise can be a fun part of every woman's life.
