Better late than never – I have to say that the latest #thisgirlcan campaign struck a chord with me and many others because, to put it simply, it’s encouraging women to become more active and not give a monkey in the process.

As someone who has spent the last 10 years not giving a monkey what anyone thinks of them running, cycling or generally looking hot and sweaty around London, I find the stats behind the campaign and research undertaken by Sport England pretty compelling.

I’d appreciate a little enlightenment if you have the time. A better way to look at it would be beneficial.
