Back in June 2006, the FIM made a major commitment towards women in motorcycling by signing the Brighton Declaration, a document drafted in 1994 in Great Britain (Brighton) during the first World Conference on Women and Sport.
To date, 419 organisations worldwide have endorsed the Declaration with the goal to “enable and value full involvement of women in every aspect of Sport”.
Over the past decade, the FIM Women in Motorcycling Commission has concentrated its efforts in promoting and increasing the presence of women in motorcycling in all activities.
One key action in achieving this objective is communication – spreading the word, giving exposure, sharing best practices and success stories.
10 years later, to reinforce its actions, the FIM Women in Motorcycling Commission is launching its own platform – a dedicated website – to celebrate all the women involved or interested in motorcycling.
The objective of this campaign is to showcase stories and portraits of women active in motorcycling, from all continents and from all spheres, sporting and non-sporting.
A way to encourage more girls and women to join the motorcycling world!
The goal of the commission is to promote and increase the presence of women in all motorcycling activities (sporting and non-sporting).
Develop, enhance and create more opportunities for women to take part in motorcycling.
