#ThisGirlCan campaign, works! Cradle to grave. From then, to now...

The #ThisGirlCan @ThisGirlCan campaign has already inspired 2.8 million women to be more active. The new Sport England campaign aims to inspire more women to be more active, more often.

Join in the fun!

As you can see: science, medicine and sport was a strong feature in my early life. I ran, I played tennis, I was captain of the hockey team and I loved the outdoors. It became a lifelong habit alongside my studies, homelife and career/s.

But for many of my female friends, sport and exercise were an anethema. Which was hardly surprising given the poor changing facilities, lack of privacy, and focus on sport.

This is why we need women to claim physical activity as a basic human right. For all. For all times.

Please join the #ThisGirlCan campaign on social media. Let's help women be the difference to their health and the health of other women!

To now:

Some things never change: born disruptive! #ThisGirlCan.
