Equality For Female Boxers - 2016 Olympics Rio de Janeiro
by Sue TL Fox
August 2, 2013
     
   
   

(AUG 2) WBAN has just created a special community Facebook, titled,  "Equality For Female Boxers - 2016 Olympics Rio de Janeiro."  This segment is dedicated solely for the most crucial issue facing the sport in regards to the female amateur boxers who are aspiring to compete in the next upcoming Olympics. 

There was a devastating decision by the International Olympic Committee [I.O.C], on July 25, 2013, that will directly affect the elite amateur female boxers in the upcoming Olympics in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

 

So why are we pursuing to encourage the I.O.C. to reconsider their decision?

Do the math:   There are 286 boxers in the Olympics. FEMALE BOXERS only account for 36 in the Olympics, with only THREE weight classes. In the Men's division, there are 250 boxers, in TEN Weight Classes.

On the Olympics' Official Website, they state about equality: The Olympic Charter was amended to include, for the first time in history, an explicit reference to the need for work in this area: "The IOC encourages and supports the promotion of women in sport at all levels and in all structures, with a view to implementing the principle of equality of men and women." Rule 2, paragraph 7, Olympic Charter in force as from 07.07.2007."  WBAN's stand on this issue:  This is NOT Equality for females in the sport of boxing.

To become involved go to the link and spread the word about this to friends, media, websites, and be part of the fight for these elite athletes.   Link to Equality for Female Boxers
