Sexism in sport 'must be reported'
- From the section Sport
Jamie Brookes, trustee at the Women's Sport Trust, says elite sportswomen experiencing sexism must "tell somebody."
Brookes encouraged sportswomen to speak to senior leaders when they felt discriminated against, arguing that "it's only by working together, men and women, that we can make change happen."
More than 40% of elite sportswomen in Great Britain have experienced sexism but only 7% have reported it, according to a survey conducted by BBC Sport.
