Women Sport Australia (WSA) is the peak national advocacy body for women in sport. WSA fights to lower the many barriers facing women and girls in sport including the right to:

  • Equal pay, workplace conditions and career progression
  • Equal access to competition and training facilities, sports medicine and administration
  • Equal media time, space, treatment and status
  • Equal access to leadership and mentoring opportunities.

Australia has come a very long way in promoting female sport’s participation and getting behind female teams from various sporting codes. But there is still a lot of room for growth, which is really exciting.
