Prime Minister Gordon Brown, who is opening the WSFF conference on Thursday, has said his government is committed "to achieving a step change in how women and girls experience and participate in sport".
Minister for Sport Gerry Sutcliffe said: "One in five women participating regularly in sport is not enough.
"Getting more women doing sport is one of my priorities. We have to change the notion that sport is something for men and find ways in which it can be more appealing to women.
"This will need a joint effort from government, sports governing bodies and the private sector to make this happen."
Double Olympic gold medallist Dame Kelly Holmes said: "We need to find out ways to encourage girls to do exercise with their friends, to go to the gym, go out for walks, go on bike rides - things that you can find that are fun." http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/7094936.stm (BBC NEWS)
