The term underdeveloped nation was authored duringthe Cold War time which was in a roundabout way battled between Erstwhile USSR (Communist coalition) and USA (NATO). The future of women is not supported in the third world country, Third world countries were also called as Non-aligned nations which consist of India, Afghanistan, Armenia, Bangladesh, Brazil, Egypt, Fiji, Jamaica, Laos, and Nepal etc. Despite the fact that numerous women’s from third world countries have achieved in sports but still there are many who are dreaming of it and this is the current scenario around the third world countries.
Though some women have achieved great success in politics, business, and teaching but still in sports field it is left untouched and there are many reasons behind it. Firstly, Poor maintenance of government, Gender Inequality, Extreme poverty and hunger and to achieve the goal of advance ladies in games is to kill neediness and craving, accomplishing widespread essential training, advancing sexual orientation balance, guaranteeing natural maintainability and building up a worldwide association with kindred nations. Basically sports are very important and essential for both women and girls which help them in physically and mentally fit.
Nawal El Moutawakel of Morocco the principal women from an Islamic country to win an Olympic decoration for the 400 meter obstacles at 1984 Olympics and furthermore a Kenyan women called TeglaLoroupe in 1994 turned into the primary African women to win a recognized marathon. These achievements aren’t achieved easily there were numerous barriers, hurdles, gender and racial discrimination.
India is a third world country, full of casteism, religionisim and with many evil filled traditions evenin these difficult times,there are few women who have liberated themselves from these social evils and norms and have achieved in sports and being notified only because of their real hard-working nature for e.g. Sania Mirza in tennis, Saina Nehwal in badminton, P.T.Usha in field athlete and Mary Kom in Boxing who topped in their concerned sports and brought women from darkness to limelight.
The future of women in sports from third world countries is hardly supported except by few mainly because of gender stereotypes in the society who are the decorum breakers and education is the only means to come out of the shackles of gender stereotypes. Sport leadership by women can shape up the thoughts of male domains. There are many programmes conducted all around the globe for promoting women sports especially for the third world countries such as Sport pour la Paix which means Sport for peace launched in Cote d’lvoire to bring women and young people togetherwhobelogtodifferentgroups,after years of disputes. Even though when women get support to entersports by their groups or by their families it is up to the country’s wealth and power to facilitate the sportswomen. If a country is suffering from severe starvation, dysentery, crazed warlords, religious persecution, illiteracy and extreme inflation it is solely governments fault.
Unfortunately many third world countries are struggling a lot for good governance and many women who are talented are a big conundrum and these are the main reasons for no support in sports from the third world countries for both the women and men. It is disgraceful to know that only 4% of sports coverage is dedicated to women’s sport both in national and local print media,one of the many reasons for no future in women in sports. In order to tackle this problem there should be many programmes and government schemes which is the only way for promoting women in sports especially in the third world countries. No matter how bad a women’s situation is and how bad her country is, it is up to women; her willpower and her hard-working passion, nobody can stop her from achieving her success. Some famous notable women in sports are Rimla Akhtar (Member of the FA council), Nigerian born Eniola Aluka (England Footballer), and Nicola Adams (Olympic boxing champion) have achieved corking success in their sports career.
