The female gender has had to overcome many barriers and countless gaps in the world of sports. However, interest in women's participation continues to grow, thanks to the impetus given to it for equal development.
A recent study by Lluisa Sauleda, published in the Journal of Psychology and Related Sciences Interdisciplinary, revealed the current gender gap in sport with a typical case of historical marginalization. The data collected unfortunately show that the gap has not been closed and masculinized sports spaces will continue to persist. The findings indicate that girls and women have fewer opportunities and support at the professional level than men. However, it is essential to raise awareness and make visible the importance of leaving women aside in the field of sports.
But, on the contrary, for Simone Biles, the ability to face difficult situations or the tenacity she has to achieve her goals has been reflected throughout her life.
