Watch What I Do: Basketball film breaking down barriers

Evidence that body image, bullying and peer pressure are a barrier to young women participating in sport, has prompted the release of a film about basketball.

"Watch What I Do" was created with a female-led cast and has had almost one million online views in two weeks.
