Fiona Crawford: The Matilda Effect

Fiona Crawford: The Matilda Effect

With their extraordinary tilt at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup, the Matildas demolished every preconception about women’s sports, breaking viewership records and winning the hearts of Aussies. Fiona Crawford examines The Matilda Effect – the long, often infuriating journey of women’s football from the margins to the mainstream, and how Sam Kerr and the girls have changed the game.

Fiona joins Brisbane Writers Festival to talk about Australian sport and the power of the Matildas with lecturer in Digital Culture Maureen Engel.
