Summary
Sport is integral to Australian life and identity, and we{u2019}re rightly proud of our sporting achievements. But less glorious is the fact that, when it comes to the games we play, half of the population doesn{u2019}t get a look-in. According to the latest statistics, 81 per cent of sports media covers male-only sport, while just 8.7 per cent focuses on women. That{u2019}s right {u2013} horses got more attention than female athletes! Pick any sport and it{u2019}s easy to find examples of stark gender inequality and double standards so glaring that they{u2019}re almost laughable. But an extraordinary transformation is taking place, and nobody is better placed to call it than veteran sports journalist Angela Pippos. In Breaking the Mould, Pippos charts a powerful awakening across Australian life; from suburban footy fields to stadium cage fights, female athletes are changing the status quo through fierce determination and undeniable performances.Through candid and often hilarious personal tales from a life spent in and around sport, Pippos calls out the systems that have kept women on the sidelines, and challenges us to keep working towards a level playing field where any young woman can become her sporting best
