Luanda — The rise in the number of women in sports management depends on the hiking number of practising females from the current 2,5 to 10 percent, said Monday in Luanda the deputy minister for Sports, Albino da Conceição.
Speaking to Angop on the occasion of the celebrations of the International Women Day, March 8, the official spoke of the need for a gender equilibrium in sports practising, so it gets reflected on the management side.
Albino da Conceição said that the larger the number of practising females, the larger will be their participation, due to their social function as educators.
He said the reversal of the situation requires an undertaking within the national federations and associations.
The official recalled the Angolan women contribution to the national sports, mentioning their performance of last year in the quarter-finals of the handball tournament in Brazil, the African title in Morocco and the win of Afrobasket in Mali.
