Getting Girls Active: Go Go Girls!

Women's Sports Foundation is the leading authority on the participation of women and girls in sports—advocates for equality, educates the public, conducts research and offers grants & scholarships to promote sports and physical activity for girls and women.

Founded by Billie Jean King in 1974, the Women’s Sports Foundation builds on her legacy as a champion athlete, advocate of social justice and agent of change. We strive for gender equity and fight discrimination in sports.

Their work shapes public attitude about women’s sports and athletes, builds capacities for organizations that get girls active, provides equal opportunities for girls and women, and supports physically and emotionally healthy lifestyles.

They have Go Go Girl! centers set up in Atlanta, Chicago, & San Antonio, Check out this link for the Natl Go Go Girl headquarters.
