- Most people feel more confident when they feel physically strong. As the founder of Girls With Sole explains, fitness programs "empower the minds, bodies and souls."
- Team sports and fitness classes create important values of trust, confidence, and a sense of community.
- Implementing these programs could help introduce women to fellow members of their community in a safe space. Later, outside of the program, these women can recognize each other on the streets and feel confident in both themselves and their nieghbors.
- This type of empowerment can also start at any age - classes and programs could be aimed towards adults, children, or families.
There are many successful programs like this already in existance that we could look at and build upon, such as:
Girls With Sole
Fast and Female
Girls on the Run
