Women currently represent only a small fraction of gliding membership and this project is aimed at increasing participation in our sport by women. Gliding currently attracts mainly males, with about 93% male participation in Victoria and nationally. The ‘#YesGirlsGlide” initiative is aligned with the Gliding Federation of Australia‘s “Soaring to the Future“ initiative and aims to increase the proportion of women taking part in gliding to 4% of total membership over the next four years.

Gliding is a very sociable, challenging and fun adventure sport. Each year, female glider pilots from all over Australia, endeavour to meet up at a fellow club.
