As part of VicHealth's This Girl Can campaign, we've put together this practical guide to give you advice, suggestions, hints and tips to help more women and girls in your local area to get active.

This Girl Can - Victoria is a celebration of women doing their thing and being active – no matter how well they do it, how they look or how long it takes. It supports gender equality by challenging traditional gender roles (sporty and active as male traits) and by celebrating women who are fit and strong.

This guide is for you if you’re part of any activity, club or industry body that could be getting more women involved in getting active. You may be from a sport and recreation facility, gymswim centre, sporting club, school or university, local council, group fitness provider or private provider.
