Résumé

The conference "Women, sport and culture" Sfax (Tunisia) 2014, offers an opportunity to insist on the double movement which is outlined, working upstream to create a privileged space for exchange and dialogue while recognizing downstream the plurality of cultures of South and North which is translated inevitably by different conceptions of the status of the feminine body. Two types of problems can be met:

- Common problems shared by all women during their involvement in sport.

- Specific problems which derive from the membership in a culture or in a social category within the same cultural or political forming.

Argument

The conference "Women, sport and culture" Sfax (Tunisia) 2014, it fits in the optics to perpetuate the tradition of exchange, integrating international strategic approach outlined by the Brighton Declaration (1994) on Women and Sport, calling for "promoting the creation of opportunities for girls and women to participate in sport and physical activity throughout the world."

It offers plus an occasion to insist on the double movement which is outlined, working upstream so that the Mediterranean be a privileged space of exchange and dialogue while recognizing downstream, the plurality of Mediterranean cultures which is translated inevitably by different conceptions of the status of the feminine body.

This encounter appears in many respects as likely to contribute to measuring prior achievements and advances accumulated during the previous two decades, but also to stop us on deficiencies, gaps and resistance to change that still raises the involvement of women and girls in sports.

In this founder act, it is convenient to bring a global answer which does not neglect the local expressions, so much, the situations of women, at the level of the practice, as well as at the level of organization and management of sport in the different countries, are diverse.

Two types of problems can be met:

  • Common problems shared by all women during their involvement in sport.
  • Specific problems which derive from the membership in a culture or in a social category within the same cultural or political forming.
