FIS Replaces 'Ladies' with 'Women'

Found the beginning part of that quote:

It's true. Women's ski jumping has been a small sport with limited infrastructure for regular high-level competition.​
But a big reason for that is an outrageously antiquated misconception of women's reproductive health.​
To put it more bluntly, people thought ski jumping would mess up your uterus.​
"Don't forget, it's like jumping down from, let's say, about two meters on the ground about a thousand times a year, which seems not to be appropriate for ladies from a medical point of view," Gian Franco Kasper, president of the International Ski Federation, told NPR in 2005.​
