In 2015, research by Sport England suggested that a large number of women avoided taking part in sport because of a fear of how others would judge them for it - whether by how they looked, their ability or whether they might be expected to prioritise their time elsewhere.
This Girl Can challenges this by encouraging all women across the UK to get active in any sport - and to feel utterly glorious while they do it, regardless of their skill!
Bought to you by UEA Sport and the amazing Clubs at UEA, get involved in a huge range of activities this week open to women of all skills to have fun and get active! This includes tasters, classes, tournaments and chill-out sessions!
Check out the Do Something Different Calendar for all of upcoming activities between Monday 19th and Sunday 25th.
We're committed to making sure all Do Something Different events are as accessible as possible for all students.
This event will feature physical activity.
Any attendees with individual concerns about their accessibility are advised to contact Union Opportunities (Union.Opportunities@uea.ac.uk) for additional support.
What is Do Something Different?
The Do Something Different Programme is about trying a new activity and sparking your interests! We aim to encourage greater student interaction from across schools, liberations and courses that build your knowledge and skills as individuals. Perhaps you've been looking to try a new sport, attending a live music performance, or dabbling in an academic subject that piques your interest? We collate a wide variety of different activities happening across campus - from sports and games, to trips and extracurricular lectures!
There's always something happening every single day, and most events are absolutely free or cost very little! The best events will return during the Do Something Different Festival in Semester Two - a week-long celebration in which teaching is suspended for you to try a huge range of activities! Stay tuned for the full Festival programme coming soon!
