The International Association of Physical Education and Sport for Girls and Women (IAPESGW) was founded in 1949 to provide the opportunity for women physical educators to come together and share their ideas, methods, programs, problems, and solutions with each other. As an Association, IAPESGW and the members have led the way in bringing together women through physical education and sport worldwide.

Alongside the IAPESGW Scientific Congresses, the Association contributes to other international scientific programs such as the quadrennial International Convention on Science, Education and Medicine in Sport (ICSEMIS). As a members’ Association, IAPESGW responds to requests for information, support, research and action. As a recognised Member Association of the International Council for Sport Sciences and Physical Education (ICSSPE), IAPESGW helps to construct international policy and aid work in sport and physical education. It is one of six bodies that contribute to the International Committee of Sport Pedagogy, under ICSSPE. The Association also has representation on related bodies such as the International Working Group on Women and Sport (IWG)
