I invite you to read this letter that we want to send to the World Bridge Federation.
The topic is the abolition of division between women and men in youth competitions.

"Dear friends from all over the world,
I invite you to read this letter that we want to send to the World Bridge Federation.
The topic is the Abolition of Division between Women and Men in Youth Competitions.

The only reason I am referring to Youth Competitions is because I think they are the best place to start this change and hopefully, some time in the future, even adults won't have the need to be divided.

I think this is a good idea but I don't think a public document listing identities and emails is a good way of going about it.
Have you considered change.org or some similar mechanism?

Good idea. I was disappointed that the young people had been divided by gender in the first place.

One reason we have the divisions - and keep in mind that girls are certainly allowed to play in the youth and junior teams - is that the Sports Accord and Olympic movements require Seniors, Open, Junior and Women's competitions.

You do understand that this is probably a scammer harvesting email addresses for a mailing list, right?

I completely agree. I find the entire idea of women's events to be sexist. Why would a lack of testosterone or different body build be any sort of disadvantage at bridge? If men and women can compete against one another in equestrian events, in auto racing, and as jockeys, surely they can do so at the bridge table.

Cheers,
mike

That's not really possible; change.org is very well known and does not allow the petition starter access to your emails.

Sorry about this, Anastasia. The same day you posted someone spammed the forums with a bunch of suspicious links for other "petitions". The coincidence probably confused the usual Forum participants a little.

We know you are a real junior player.

Thank you so much! Sadly a lot of people think that women play bridge differently..
