"Our vision is to ensure that not only the contributions sport can make to South African women are realised, but also that the contributions that South African women can make to sport are equally well-recognised and rewarded," said Ravele of the event set to take place at Hatfield on Saturday and Sunday.
"Delegates will be coming as far as Uganda, Nigeria, Congo, Botswana and Zambia. It is a great honour to host another conference after the IWG World Conference on Women and Sport.
"SAWASF chose to be part of global change by unpacking the legacy and begin planning for the next four years. Our conference will also be attended by the Women Sport
Africa Network, and we have invited some of the leading sportswomen with lots of expertise to lead in identified topics.
"The conference will shine the light on gender mainstreaming and address topics around media and communication, accountability and representation, research and gender testing."
