Gender-based violence is a rare topic of domestic violence. The project draws public attention to gender-based violence in sports, incl. sexual harassment and violence, which mainly affect girls / women. There is too little talk about this problem, on the one hand, because the prevention of violence in sports is registered mostly with “playing by the rules”, but not with the forms of harassment and violence that take place off the field. On the other hand, after the rejection of the ratification of the Istanbul Convention and addressed it widely negative campaign, the topic of sexual assault in sports became inconvenient and associated with the promotion of “gender ideology”.

Disseminate and approved with the help of the Ministry of Youth and Sports and the National Sports Academy Rules for prevention and control of
Gender-based violence in sport will be implemented long-term after the end of the project by more and more sports organizations and sports teachers.
