Call to the IOC from the International League for Women's Rights

From the 2011 Paris Marathon to the 2012 London Olympics: promoting equality of women and men through sport events

The Paris Marathon is one of the most popular competitions in France, one where organizers are keen to treat men and women equally.

This is not yet the case in the Olympics, despite the Olympic Charter which excludes any form of discrimination.

For example the only gold medal given personally by the President of the International Olympic Committee is to the (male) winner of the Marathon. Why not to the female winner? Why not organize the Marathon for both men and women, in such a way that the winners of both sexes can share the applause? We -- as an invited NGO -- will be part of the 2011 Paris Marathon, at the Running Expo (stand n°53) and along the course (Rue Molitor, Boulevard Exelmans)
