Clubs Strive Towards Gender Equality
Three local councils have bound together to provide resources for sporting clubs to achieve gender equality by creating opportunities for women to participate in sport at all levels.
Yarra Ranges, Maroondah and Knox Councils have joined forces and are on a mission to help create environments where women feel safe, valued and welcomed to participate equally.
In a video titled "Equality is the Game" funded by the Victorian State Government, highlights the role of clubs in preventing sexism, and encourages equality and prevents violence against women.
AFL Yarra Ranges Regional General Manager Aaron Bailey says there are now more pathways for women to play at AFL level than ever before.
“The Eastern Ranges Girls Academy is the elite football program in the region for females”.
