Hey Ontario! Lets Beat 1300!

Please answer these questions - The Nova Scotia Trails Federation is undertaking a project to enhance the opportunity for women and girls to get involved in the trails movement and on trails. 

This first step will be to research the barriers to the involvement of women and girls, then to recommend steps which might assist in increasing their involvement. I wonder if you might be able to answer the following questions from an Ontario point of view:

Are any of you aware of any member associations, currently undertaking efforts to enhance the opportunities for women and girls on trails?

Is anyone aware of any barriers to women and girls being involved in the trail movement?

Do you know of any potential resources that could be used by trail groups to improve gender equity?

NS Trails has received more than 1,300 responses. This is far more than they anticipated, and perhaps demonstrates that this is an important issue.
