Abstract

Since the introduction of the Women’s World Championships in 1980 (Brousse & Matsumoto, 1999), there have been great strides within the International Judo Federation (IJF) towards bringing women’s judo on to a par with men on the world stage (Brousse, 2015). These have included competition structure, rule changes and equity over prize money (IJF, 2019a). In 2019, the IJF President Marius Vizer signed an agreement to endorse the Brighton plus Helsinki 2014 Declaration on Women and Sport (IWG, 2014) and earlier in the same year the IJF published their first Gender Equity Commission Strategy (IJF, 2019b). As in any sport, women continue to face challenges to participation and some of those issues are addressed in this chapter.
