Martina Navratilova and other sportswomen have launched a campaign to amend US President Biden’s Executive Order which demands sports participation based on gender identity.
The Women’s Sports Policy Working Group is proposing a carve out at the “higher level” of High School, College and elite sport.
“There have been so many different approaches to this issue, from all-inclusion no matter what to all-exclusion no matter what. We just wanted to find a better way of moving forward. We know there’s going to be somebody that’s not happy but we’re trying to make it as fair as possible. Now with transgender athletes, the rules are not clear. We need some clarity, we need some unity. We want to stay civil in the conversation and move the ball forward.”Martina Navratilova
