Hey <<First Name>>,

This is your 'weekly' women in sport fix, where we are always onside and never, ever #ballsonlySign up to get it delivered to your inbox. Let me know what you think @daniellewarby.

I'm currently enjoying the wine and the wine and the wine of the McLaren Vale region of South Australia. My partner and I are house sitting here until the end of November and it's a little bit fantastic. We'll be headed to the Matildas game at Coopers Stadium on the 12th November and will be pre-gaming with the Matildas Active Support. Join us!

Good words

Never mind what I've been reading, what are the kids reading? There's plenty on offer for girls and boys into sport and if you're looking for something for the small humans in your life, here are some suggestions:

"In my opinion we are in the top two leagues (globally)"

- Lauren Jackson, Head of Women in Basketball at Basketball Australia 
The WNBL season has started. All WNBL matches will be either televised or live-streamed under new broadcast deal.

Around the grounds

LIANA BURATTI - BEYOND 90
“I did that classic thing that women do – I doubted myself”. By The White Line (BTWL) has become a familiar name within women’s football. Started by Rachel Bach, her brand has become synonymous with capturing uniquely moving and privileged moments, where the bond between photographer and subject is undeniably evident.
MARY KONSTANTOPOULOS - LADIES WHO LEAGUE
"Aussie women's cricket the best it's ever been". Alyssa Healy continues her run of good form. During the tour against Sri Lanka, Healy played her 100th T20 International and made her 175th appearance for her country. On that day, she became just the eighth woman to play more than 100 T20Is and only the second Aussie alongside her mate Ellyse Perry.
MEGAN MAURICE - THE GUARDIAN
"It is tempting to conclude that women’s sport is finally having its moment".  Kate Jenkins, the sex discrimination commissioner for the Australian Human Rights Commission, outlined six key challenges to gender equality in sport over the coming years.
SHIREEN AHMED - THE GLOBE AND MAIL (CANADA)
“Sahar Khodayari’s suicide is a gruesome reminder that men at the helm of sports federations are complicit in the deliberate exclusion of women in sport”. They have been reckless while the voices of those women have gone intentionally unheard. Ms. Khodayari’s death was horrific, but it was not shocking. Systems of misogyny appear through patriarchal interpretations of religion in Iran and also through inefficiency of the governing of sport.
KATIE WHYATT - THE TELEGRAPH (UK)
"We need to talk about periods, in all their bloody mess and glory". To watch England captain Steph Houghton discussing period poverty on national television, and the 31% of girls lost to physical activity for want of proper sanitary protection, was to hear a call to arms that we all would do well to heed.

The Matildas of 1979
