American sports violates the Crc
"American sports violates the Crc"

"the Minister and the stars, believe in change, once the convention becomes law, Would mean equality"

"Girls are discriminated against daily in a Swedish sporting movement that systematically violate the convention."

"January 1 will be the convention to Swedish law – something that could mean a historic change for american women's sports. "

"– When the Crc becomes law will these issues be high on the agenda, " says minister of Amanda Lind (MP)."

"Girls who consistently don't get the opportunity to train as often, equally good coaches, and on equally attractive times as the guys. It is the reality in many areas of youth sports in Sweden today. "

" most of The sports was created in a time of men for men and it has meant that the structures and cultures still persists in some quarters. Much of it takes place unconsciously, but overall, we are seeing a pattern where girls have fewer opportunities. However, there is a much greater awareness of this today and the sports movement to take action in the matter, but it is still too slow, " says Henrik Persson, an expert on children and youth sports at the Swedish sports Confederation (RF)."

"A situation in Sweden's sports minister Amanda Lind looks serious."

"– It is clear with this government that we give priority to artbetet with an equal and equitable sport and to reach groups who do not play sports. It has RF also taken part of, " says Lind."

"”The breach of the convention”"

"Now may also be a change to be at the time when the Crc from 1 January 2020 will be the Swedish law. Barnrättsexperten Kirsten Sandberg has, through its membership in the UN committee for eight years, helped to ensure that member states follow the letters."

"– If the girls don't get to practice as often as boys, I would say that it violates the convention. If the girls don't get to train as often as the boys have compounds to have a very good and factual basis for it, and I find it difficult to see a such where they will not be able to offer training as often, "says Sandberg, who argue that the same applies to differences in coaches' education and skills."

"– You must, in all cases, expect of the club in question that they are making an equally big bet, and actually a greater bet, to get hold of good coach to the girls because maybe it is more difficult. "

"One of Sweden's best hockey player, Pernilla Winberg, feel more than well again in a variety of conditions for girls and guys. He played hockey until she was 13, soccer until she was 15 and participated in 2005 in the guy's TV-pucken, just a year before the OLYMPICS-the silver, with Sweden's women's national in Turin."

"– It was always late the times for the girls and not as many exercise options. The girls had also, perhaps, just a trainer at the same time as the guys had three or four. It has been the biggest differences when I played with guys or girls, " says Winberg."

"Hockeystjärnans image is also not much changed during the last 15 years. A view, 29-year-old created over the last five years of work towards the organizational activities of the organization ”Sports without borders”."

"– It is about the same. It is still a little bit of later times, and fewer training session for the girls. "

"Fischer: Would mean equality"

"Would the Swedish courts to interpret the Crc in the same manner as the un committee's Kirsten Sandberg, this means that it will be unlawful for associations that do not offer the same training opportunities to girls and boys. "

"Something some of Sweden's top athletes welcome."

" I think that if one would make an interpretation of the law after the crc, and this interpretation would need to be observed at the grassroots level and further to the football, so this would mean gender equality, says the football team's Nilla Fischer, who believe that the development would represent a historic boost for the american sport."

" I personally believe that if we women already from childhood had received the same opportunities, prerequisites, and the legal right to play football so we had been in line with herrfotbollen as a whole today. Therefore, this interpretation of the crc is extremely important for Swedish football. For example, it is reasonable to assume that our domestic league will become better and stand up better internationally. Likewise, our national team."

"Hockeyprofilerna Pernilla Winberg and Kim Martin, former landslagsmålvakt and today director of sport in Linköping HC, is equally positive."

"– It would mean a lot. It need not even be exactly the same, it just gets a little bit better, it is clear that it will make a big difference. The girls have better opportunities to develop, and then maybe also more girls starts with the sport which is important for health, " says Pernilla Winberg."

"– It is something amazing if we work within the Swedish girl - womens-hockey get even more help along the way without having to nag themselves, " says Kim Martin."

"the Minister think of the clear effect."

"the Lawyer Louise Hammarbäck, who runs the organization Pacs working with the Crc to strengthen children's rights in sport," says to Sportbladet that no one today knows how the Swedish judiciary will interpret the new laws. But it will make a difference, she is sure."

"– It will make a difference, as there is with a national law will also introduce criminal liability. This means that the Crc alone can be the basis for a judgment and I believe that many compounds which have children and young people will be more cautious. The person who is ultimately responsible in the association are the president, and I believe and hope that all will be rigorous, says Hammarbäck. "

"You are talking about criminal liability, but who should be punished if a compound, for example, in breach of article twelve of children's influence?"

"– That you don't know how in the day for it has never been tested in court. You can really only guess at it and unfortunately I have no good answer to that question."

"Minister Amanda Lind also believe in a clear effect of the amendment."

"– Yes, it I think. Secondly, I believe that it is contributing to the issue be discussed and there will be a greater work that is being done in all parts of the sport to live up to the Crc. It is something you already do, but it is an important to the ethical code and guidelines from the RF also brought to life locally. Then, the law also brings to this perspective will be followed up further in the dialogues and work with contributions from the municipalities."

"Can the Crc as law provide more concrete tools? "

"– we must come back to because this is something new and that is to involve a heightened level of ambition. Then we must consider whether we have sufficient tools for it, "says Lind, adding that"

"– When the Crc becomes law will these issues be high on the agenda. "
