Physiological differences between men and women cannot be erased by policy declarations, and most sporting events will continue to be segregated according to gender, at least for the time being. However, considerable energy is being placed in teaching gender equality in European classrooms and Monaco is no exception.

A collective work is being produced by the children of the Principality for March 8, 2023, which promotes gender equality through sports, the Government said in a press release.

In collaboration with the Department of National Education, Youth and Sports, 100 children from CE1 classes in schools in Monaco have been taking part in the creation of a collective work by the artist Mr One Teas on the theme: “Women and sport seen through the prism of the new generation”.

“Equality education must begin at an early age”, said Céline Cottalorda, Monaco’s Interministerial Delegate for Women’s Rights, who adds “involving children in the theme of sport where many inequalities and stereotypes persist allows them to pass messages and raise their awareness.”

The final result of this exercise will be unveiled on March 8. The #8MarsMonaco operation will also be visible on social networks and in town, in particular near Stade Louis II.
