We are Creating a Culturally/Religiously Appropriate Wrestling activewear called LONGLET.
The implementation of our mission is of importance not only at the level of universal barriers of women’s wrestling but also at the level of local problems. One of the barriers to participation in the sport of wrestling is the dress code worn by wrestlers. There are still major groups of women whose religious beliefs or social norms do not let them to wear the current outfit of wrestling. Gender Equity Wrestling is working to engage these groups in wrestling by providing them with the opportunity to wearing their appropriate outfit. Our first project — LONGLET— will enable more women have an opportunity to wrestle and feel empowered while honouring their beliefs and values.
