International Women's Sports Federation

The International Women's Sports Federation held an Olympic-style Games, in 1922, in Paris. Women athletes representing eight countries competed in 11 athletic events, as 30,000 spectators supported the protest against exclusion of women by the Amateur Athletics Federation.
