Embrace body positivity by spending #TimeTogether

This October, Women in Sport are encouraging mums (as well as mum figures including aunties, grandmothers, step-mums or foster mums) and their teenage daughters to spend #TimeTogether getting active in a judgment-free zone that allows them to celebrate and accept their bodies for what they are and what they can do.

Now in its fourth year, #TimeTogether is one solution to increase activity levels and enjoyment of sport among women and girls after Women in Sport research found 1.3 million girls in the UK, who enjoyed sport in primary school, drop out during their teenage years. Deep-rooted negative attitudes which include a fear of judgement, combined with the challenges of navigating puberty, are affecting their enjoyment of sport. Six out of 10 teenage girls are also not meeting physical activity guidelines of 60 minutes of activity per day.
