Luanda – The chairwoman of the Association of Angolan Women and Sports (AMUD), Teresa Quarta, said Thursday in Luanda that the development of female sport over the 36 years of the country’s independence is not proportional to the intervention of women in sports management.
Teresa Quarta was speaking to Angop about the history of the female sport since 1975, as compared with male’s.
She said female sport has developed in Africa and world but in an era of globalisation women still have a long way to go toward winning managing roles.
In her turn, the vice president of the Angolan Football Federation (FAF) for female football said the time of inhibition of women from standing for sports managing positions belongs to the past.
She said the history of the national sport has produced females with proved capacity to run managing positions in the sector.
The official said that for years there was the thinking that only men had the capacity to hold managing posts, but the truth has proved otherwise.
According to her, there are sportswomen who have excelled and can now contribute to lead institutions.
On the other hand, the deputy chairwoman of the Association of National Olympic Committees (ACNOA) mentioned the results scored by Angolan women handball leading the African ranking for the last decade, in addition to the basketball that won the Afrobaskt2011 and canoeing in the All Africa Games.
