High time to associate the name Kaouther Belhadj Mohamed with women in minifootball
Gender mainstreaming in sport organizations consists of integrating a gender equality perspective at all stages and levels of activities and governance. Different genders have different needs and living conditions and circumstances.
The aim of gender mainstreaming is to take into account these differences when designing, implementing, and evaluating activities in order to create frameworks that benefit all genders and do not increase inequality but enhance gender equality.
Competitions are the peak of performance “show-off” in any sport. All the actors in sport are engaged, including sponsors and decision-makers. So, competitions, due to the attention they get in the media, are the most visible and most promoted events.
Therefore, they are suitable for the promotion of positive values and for the purpose of not losing any more talents and any more champions reflected in women.
Ms. Kaouther Belhadj Mohamed became a Development committee member in charge of women's development of WMF.
She is specialized in Sport Management from 2015 and a Director and founder of Olympique Marseille School, Tunis.
We had a pleasure to do the interview with Ms. Belhadj Mohamed, and she told us how it feels to be a member of the Development Committee with the responsibility to level up the position of women in WMF:
„First, I would like to thank the executive members of WMF for the confidence that they had given me, to direct this great and noble mission within this respectful organization. It is an honor for me to be able to contribute to the development of this beautiful sport discipline in remarkable growth, and more particularly for the woman who is a key player and one of the greatest pillars of development of any sport.”
What is your strategy?
”Before developing any strategy, it is necessary to study our environment, both internal and external. I need to know all the details relating to each female activity practiced within the national federations affiliated to the WMF.
Next, we will develop strategies based on the information we have processed. For me, it is very important to collaborate with several competent people from different countries who have already launched their women's championship. Any strategic plan should not be removed from reality, on the contrary, the participation of everyone and their responsibility towards this mission which has been entrusted to me is very important for touching on several pillars of development.”
What is your vision?
My dream is to see the birth of female Minifootball leagues in each country, an official championship on each continent, and to make the first female Minifootball World Cup a success. All of this could not be achieved without everyone's effort. It is the responsibility of all of us and I am very optimistic about that.”
We expect nothing but success through joint efforts, led by this remarkable woman.
As it was planned according to the decision brought previously on the two events due to have happened in 2020, WMF Executive Committee reaffirmed the decision to go ahead in 2021.
