You’re now an approved campaign supporter of This Girl Can – Victoria!
So, what is this campaign about?
This Girl Can is an uplifting and energetic campaign which speaks directly to the audience of everyday women.
We’re empowering women to be active and do their thing. No matter how well they do it, how they look or even how red their face gets.
The campaign features everyday Victorian women from diverse ages, backgrounds, sizes, and abilities being physically active. No models, Instagram influencers or elite athletes.
Just everyday women. All feeling something different when they get active, from an adrenaline high to quiet contentment and everything in between.
It’s about women getting active whenever, wherever and however they choose – without worrying about being judged
Women are worried about feeling judged when they get active (52% of Victorian women, to be exact). It can be about:
- Being sweaty
- Not wearing makeup
- Showing your body
- Wearing the wrong clothing
- Body shape / size
- Not being fit enough
- Holding back the group
- Not knowing the rules or what equipment to bring
- Spending time exercising instead of with:
Our research and tells us that women are motivated by wanting to feel good, spending time being active with friends and feeling like they belong. If women ‘find their tribe’ they’re more likely to keep coming back.
We also know that thinking about how being active makes them feel, helps women stop worrying about what people think.
We celebrate everyday women who are all kinds of active, no matter how well they do it, how they look or how sweaty they get.
Does it work?
In 2021, This Girl Can – Victoria inspired almost 340,000 women to get active.
That’s 1 in 6 Victorian women aged 18-65 getting more active because of this campaign – wow!
And you can help us reach even more women.
