The International Women's Forum gave accolades to former Salt Lake City Mayor Deedee Corradini on Friday for her continued effort to get women ski jumpers in the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.
      Corradini, the president of Women's Ski Jumping USA, was presented with the "Woman Who Makes a Difference Award." As part of WSJUSA, the former mayor has been lobbying to have the sport included in the upcoming Winter Games. Ski jumping is the only event in the Winter Olympics that does not allow women.   
    Corradini's organization has also backed a lawsuit in British Columbia against the Vancouver Organizing Committee over the ban. The lawsuit claims VANOC is a quasi-governmental organization and therefore subject to Canada's Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which prohibits discrimination.
