Vrouwen hekelen seksisme Olympische Spelen

Door Peter Tatchell, 25 juli 2012

Sixty women’s delegates from Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia rallied in London today to demand: “London 2012: Justice for Women – End gender discrimination at the Olympics.”
The protest was coordinated by the European Women’s Lobby, which is linked to a network of more than 1,500 women’s organisations across Europe.

Three demands against gender discrimination:

1. Parity: Equal numbers of male and female Olympic disciplines and events.
2. Decision-making bodies: apply immediately a minimum quota of 20% women’s representation and set parity objectives.
3. Homage and visibility: the IOC President should give the gold medal to both the male and the female marathon winners, and not only to the male winner.

Three demands against sexual segregation:

4. No more male-only delegations.
5. Competitors and officials must not be allowed to wear politico-religious symbols.
6. IOC should no longer support gender the segregated games for women organized by Tehran.

One demand to build a better world of equality and inclusion:

7. No more stereotypes (sexism, homophobia, transphobia), separation of Olympics / Paralympics, and end prostitution around the Olympics.
