There are a number of sports at the University of Hull that are female only or mixed gender sports. However, there is no identification that links women to that sport at social events.
I wish to raise the issue of club colours only being available to male members of sports teams. As a female, and female members before myself, we have only been able to witness the club tie and what it means to belong to a sports club. I believe that only club colours being available to the males of sports teams belittles the involvement of women in mixed gender sports and ladies-only sport clubs.
For equality purposes, I would like to propose an equivalent form of club colours for females to wear that could be purchased from Hull University Union. The equivalent form of club colours is a silk scarf that could be purchased from the University Union. I believe that this could be an exciting transition for equality in modern mixed gender sports, female sports and an improvement in inclusivity.
