Play On! Hidden History of Women's Australian Rules Football
For more than 100 years, girls and women have moved off the sidelines and onto the field to kick, mark and handball, as well as tackle, bump and shepherd. Despite the thousands who have played in locations around Australia, the female game has largely remained in the shadows until recently. Play On! The Hidden History of Women's Australian Rules Football explores how the game spread from west to east and reveals little-known facts about women in sport and women in society. Featuring fascinating material drawn from interviews with women who participated in games as far back as the 1930s, plus dozens of unpublished evocative images of female players and teams, this is a book that anyone interested in football, history or creative non-fiction will not want to miss.
