Tonight, O and I witnessed history in the making. We attended the inaugural women’s AFL match at Princess Park, and it.was.amazing!
I was quite the tomboy growing up. In fact, when I was 8 years old I broke my arm playing football. I didn’t play much after that.
I always felt like I could either be sporty or feminine. As if being good at sport took away from my feminity. As if that even mattered.
Tonight, as I looked out on the field at those women kicking absolute arse on that field and knowing that my children will grow up with this being normal.
I am so happy. Tonight was a huge step forward towards true equality in society. We’ve got a ways to go, and I feel like this post wouldn’t be complete without at least mentioning the indiscretion in wages.
But tonight was special, and we got to be a part of it.
