Re: Fairness in Women’s Hang Gliding & Paragliding


The International Consortium on Female Sport (ICFS) includes representation from across the world. We are elite athletes and coaches, academics and scientists, and legal and human rights experts. We call on USHPA, and its member and state associations, to eliminate discrimination against female pilots, and restore fairness to the female category in hang gliding and paragliding.

In developing your policy for transgender and gender diverse players in 2019, we understand that you consulted with your community over Facebook. However, given a very high percentage of your pilots are male, and therefore unimpacted by your policy, and most women are scared to voice their concerns publicly, we are concerned that your female pilots’ voices have not been heard.
