She Breaks Barriers is adidas’ commitment to removing barriers standing between girls and sport. It is a series of initiatives to inspire and enable the next generation of female athletes, creators, and leaders. The initiative has three areas of focus – to provide better access to sport for women and girls, remove gender stereotypes, and to address inequality experienced by female athletes at all levels and ages.
Launched in North America in December 2018, the initiative was born from the belief that through sport we have the power to change lives.
In the Philippines, women continue to break barriers in sports. For the first time in Asian Games history, the gender ratio of Filipino athletes sent last year was 50-50. Out of the 18 medals the Philippines took home, 12 were won by female athletes— showing the world just how powerful sports are in inspiring and affecting change in girls’ and women’s lives.
