Since the inception of Australian Rules football in the 1850s, women have been eager to be involved. More than 100 years ago, they began taking to the field. However, their stories have largely been invisible – sidelined, ignored or forgotten.
Play On! is the first comprehensive history of women’s Australian Rules football and showcases the athleticism, hard work and resilience that has kept the women’s game alive.
With schoolgirls’ competitions flourishing, state leagues growing, and the creation of a national league, the women’s game has never been stronger.
Join co-author Brunette Lenkic, for the story of how this amazing book came about.
Copies of Play On! will be available for purchase and signing on the night.
Note: the presentation will run for approximately one hour, followed by refreshments.
