Girl Zone (This Girl Can) – Sign up via our website.Links to an external site.
B&FC are partnering up with This Girl Can to bring Girl Zone to B&FC.
Launched in 2015, the This Girl Can campaign research shows that many women are put off taking part in physical activity due to a fear of judgement – this might be about the way they look when they exercise, that they’re not good enough to join in or they should be spending more time on their families, studies or other priorities.
Girl Zone is a space for female and non-binary students to come together and have an area where they can feel comfortable to come together and have fun. As well as having an online discussion board via the Enrichment @B&FC Teams area, members will have a space on site to visit for Girl Zone only sessions.
