The World Archery Gender Equity Committee has established a new award to reward the involvement of women in archery at every level. This award will be given to women for their remarkable contribution and service to World Archery. It is called the “World Archery Women's Award.”
Another award will also be given each year to World Archery Member Associations for their female athletes’ outstanding participation in major World Archery events. It is called the “World Archery Member Associations Female Athletes Award.”
These awards were granted for first time on the occasion of the 48th World Archery Congress (Ulsan 2009). Three Member Associations with the most female athletes participating in the 2008 World Cup received the Member Associations Female Athletes Award. In addition, World Archery Council presented, the World Archery Women’s Award to remarkable women in the archery family for their outstanding contribution to World Archery.
