This is one of Metropolis’s major projects, aimed at devoting and promoting sportswomen for a week and for better consideration. The purpose is to consider women in society and engage in various sporting practices in order to pursue equality between women and men.

With his commitment to this purpose, Kathy Dehez Share with us her feelings about the spiritual change she wants. “” As a woman, I keep this event in mind and show somewhere the inequality that women experience in everyday life, such as sports. I’m proud to be able to talk about women’s sports, not necessarily about sports in general, because I think women deserve to be more recognized rather than generalized in men’s sports. »»
