Maidan Summit 2011 - Maria Bobenrieth, Women Win

Ms Maria Bobenrieth took the audience through a journey of Women Win with a video presentation at Maidan Summit 2011. Sport can play a unique role by empowering girls and women with a range of social assets, new skills and access to resources and opportunities, she said. Through sport, girls can benefit economically, emotionally and achieve self-determination. They can challenge and expand norms pertaining to what is acceptable for girls and women. Sport consortiums like federations, different communities and development sector organisations should come together, supporting the fact that sport gives the girls an ability to practice leadership, and transforms the way they think about themselves and the way communities see them. Most importantly, it builds social networks.

“You have to design for what you want to be the outcome,” she said, further explaining that adding girls in boys’ sport programmes will not work, and hence there is a need of programmes which are specifically designed for and by girls. Ms Bobenrieth concluded on a beautiful note. “At the end of the day, girls are not a problem; they are actually the answer or solution to it,” she said.
