Greater Shepparton Women Encouraged To Get Active For ‘This Girl Can’
This Girl Can - Victoria is about empowering everyday women to get active in their local community without feeling judged. We want all women – no matter how sweaty they get, how red their face is or how good they are – to feel comfortable about getting out there and giving physical activity a go. That’s what ‘This Girl Can - Victoria’ is all about.
We want Greater Shepparton women to know that we get it. Rocking up to a gym class or training session is tough when you don’t know what to expect. That’s why the activities during ‘This Girl Can - Victoria’ Week are inclusive, non-judgemental and accessible for women of different ages, body shapes and abilities.
The goal of the campaign is for Victorian women to empower each other to feel comfortable in their bodies and in public spaces – regardless of their ability, how they look or how sweaty they get. ‘This Girl Can - Victoria’ has had real success in building a supportive community of women who encourage each other to get out there and get active.

Greater Shepparton City Council is proud to work with VicHealth for the ‘This Girl Can - Victoria’ campaign, to encourage local women and girls to smash the stereotypes holding them back from getting active and have a go.
