Minister defends 'feminine sports' comments

Sports minister Helen Grant has said her comments about getting women into sport have been 'taken out of context'.


Disappointing to see comments I made to the Telegraph on women in sport now taken completely out of context.


Was making the point that there is a sport or type of physical activity out there for all women.


For some women it will be traditional sports like tennis or football, for others extreme sports like freestyle skiing and for others dance.


Minister: Women should be offered 'feminine' sports

Feminine sports like Zumba and cheerleading should be offered to more women in a bid to narrow the gender gap in sport, the minister for sport and equality has suggested.
