CHANGE MAKERS – A woman’s voice for the first time.

Giuliana Chenal-Minuzzo (ITA, skiing) - 1931-….

In 1956, at the Cortina d’Ampezzo Winter Games, women made up only 17 per cent of the athletes.
But that didn’t stop the Organising Committee from embracing modernity by deciding that it would be a woman who would take the Olympic oath.

A powerful symbol, and a moment seen by thousands watching at home on TV, with the Winter Games broadcast on Eurovision for the first time.
