This publication delves into the participation of Australian women and girls in sport and physical activity, and the difference between male and female patterns of behaviour. It uses AusPlay data collected from July 2016 to June 2017.

The federal government is encouraging young women to take part in physical activity via the inspiring ‘Girls – Make Your Move’ campaign. The campaign targets girls aged 12-19 years, promoting physical activity and sport as fun with many positive benefits - inspiring, energising and empowering young women to be more active.
