Special thanks to our hosts at AAUW San Jose

AAUW San Jose’s Sports Equity Project raises awareness that athletics offers a pathway to success for many women and girls, one to which, by law, they are guaranteed the same access that has long been given to boys. Sports Equity also partners with the Bay Area Women’s Sports Initiative (BAWSI). The BITS program encourages women to “Be In The Seats” at local women’s and girl’s sporting events as a visible demonstration

of support for and interest in sports. Athletics are promoted as a way to enhance all aspects of the lives of girls and women.
