WASHINGTON, D.C. – Independent Women’s Forum (IWF) spokeswoman Riley Gaines today issued the following statement in response to the decision by World Athletics to exclude biological men from women’s world ranking competitions:
“As a woman of sport, I sincerely thank World Athletics and Seb Coe for prioritizing fairness and integrity in sports over so-called ‘inclusion.’ Our mission and work to save women’s sports is nowhere near complete, but this decision is monumental and gives me hope for other sport-specific organizations.”
