Qatar Sport Women's Committee

1. The Promotion of Women in Sport and the Olympic Movement

-The IOC, through its Women and Sport Commission, has been working untiringly to implement programmes to enable women and girls the world over to feel fully involved in the universal movement to promote women in and through sport"
-At the Games of the XXVIII Olympiad in Athens in 2004, women competed in 26 sports (out of 28) and 135 events, or 45% of the total number of events. Women represented 40.7% of the total number of athletes competing, a record number. This progress on the field is also the result of various national sports policies and of National Olympic Committees taking advantage of Olympic Solidarity programmes and scholarships to improve their performances
-The participation of women in the Olympic Movement at all levels has changed considerably: it fully represents the values of our modern society worldwide
 
 
- The significant gains obtained by women in sport at all levels in the last 30 years in particular, is the result of the cooperation of the entire Olympic Movement and of innovative measures that the International Olympic Committee, International Federations, National Olympic Committees and numerous sports volunteers have developed to increase the number of women participating in the Olympic Games and to acquire the necessary knowledge to empower them for leadership and administrative positions.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
2. History of the Qatar Women's Sport Committee
The Qatar Women's Sports Committee (QWSC) was proclaimed in the year 2001 by HH Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al-Thani, the Heir Apparent of Qatar, President of the Qatar Olympic Committee (the QOC) and Member of the International Olympic Committee.
