In celebration of International Women’s Day, a one-day conference will be held at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center, giving the floor to women, mothers and female athletes with disabilities, or mothers of children with disabilities, to assess the contribution of sports to the quality of their own and their children’s lives.
Women for whom disability is part of everyday life share their daily experiences and openly discuss their own or their children’s social acceptance and the challenges they face. Furthermore, they comment on the improvements in their lifestyle, which they have noted in recent years.
Today, sports play a pivotal role in the well-being of people with disabilities, as it shifts the focus on their abilities. The conference will explore how participating in sports activities has a positive impact on developing their cognitive abilities and motor skills, self-confidence, and level of socialization.
