International Women’s Day is all about celebrating the achievements of women and fighting for equality in all areas (can I get a hell yeah!). Perhaps one of the most exciting places women are taking the lead is on our sporting fields, so what better way to celebrate this day than with some driven, literary boss-babes kicking it (sometimes literally) in the world of sport!
Cress is a lady who knows what she wants – to play AFL – and has followed her dreams. But like all dreams, these come with their own set of challenges. Moving from a small town to the big city, competing against the best and, perhaps the toughest of all, following her heart!
Just as important as those in the spotlight are the women who take care of all the behinds the scenes work on our favourite sports. Just like physiotherapist Sera, who is caught up with filthy-rich athlete Jordan Sereghetti in all the right ways. But will it compromise her professional ethics?
What women doesn’t feel like they’re constantly trying to juggle it all? For Angelica Bryant, that means playing AFL, studying sports management, working in her soccer star father’s sports-bar and trying to juggle an unexpected romance. Maybe your life is a different kind of hectic, but there’s nothing like reading about other ladies hustling to keep you on track!
