The International Olympic Committee, according to material on its own website, includes the following as part of its mission:
- To act against any form of discrimination affecting the Olympic Movement;
- To encourage and support the promotion of women in sport at all levels and in all structures with a view to implementing the principle of equality of men and women
My question is, why are countries that do not allow women to take part in the Olympics not barred from sending any team at all?
