Women's Celebration Month is a moment to celebrate women of all backgrounds and from all walks of life. It serves as a reminder of the remarkable contributions women have made to our society. During this month, we also acknowledge that gender biases exist and continue to hinder the progress of women everywhere.

Our Women's Celebration Games are an opportunity for us to collectively amplify the efforts and voices of women to overcome gender barriers. We hope to uplift and support women and young girls in making strides towards equality.


Sports are more than just a game and in their nature bring people together over a common good. We want to foster an environment that respects all individuals of diverse sexual and gender identities to create a safe space for individuals to be their authentic selves.

“This piece celebrates our achievements, as women, in the world of sport. The free flowing lines and colourfully bolded accents represent a woman's ability to be dynamically free-flowing, as they powerfully push beyond the limitations. The juxtaposition of the soft pastel palette against the strong stature of the three figures, speaks to the qualities that make women incredibly well-rounded athletes; embracing physical vigor, competitiveness and ambition but also the power to thrive on being empathetic, collaborative and expressive.”
