Promoting Gender Equality, SDG5 in Gymnastics

MªAlejandra Ávalos-Ramos, Gladys Merma-Molina, Lilyan Vega-Ramirez


The training of future teachers of Physical Activity and Sport Sciences (PAS) must offer learning that ensures comprehensive training. The social demand and the international call to achieve global objectives to overcome any problems associated with health, education or gender differences, makes training and awareness approach necessary for these future professionals. This area, where Olympic values such as respect, excellence and friendship are paramount, has much to offer in addressing these issues. Gender differences in spaces that are still masculinized such as the sports world are a worrying issue; within sports disciplines, the various gymnastic specialties are a traditional area from which to contribute. The aim of this study is to identify the prior knowledge of PAS students in relation to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to implement and assess a teaching action to contribute to the specific training of students on the SDGs and specifically on SDG5: Gender Equality. This way, the teaching strategy has contributed to the awareness of university students towards these objectives and goals, to the identification and description of the main initiatives from the Royal Spanish Gymnastics Federation (RFEG) associated with the development of SDG 5, as well as to the design of possible actions to reduce gender differences and inequalities in the gymnastic environment.
