Supper Room, Melbourne Town Hall, VIC
Women's sport is on the rise. The growth of professional netball and T20 cricket, the establishment of the first AFL women's competition and the rising prominence of national teams like football's Matilda's and the gold medal winning rugby 7's team has given women's sport in Australia unprecedented profile. Does this represent a revolution in sport? Is it world of new opportunity or simply opportunism by traditional male dominated sport?
