SENATOR CLAIRE CHANDLER
I’m Claire Chandler, passionate Tasmanian and proud representative for our great state in Canberra.
I’ve been blessed to live and work in beautiful Tasmania my entire life. In 2019, I was given the honour of being elected to the Australian Senate.
Because I know Tasmania, I know how important it is to fight for jobs and economic opportunity, support for local businesses and producers, and a common sense approach to governing and legislating.
Single-sex sport for women and girls is a fundamental good for our society.
Millions of Australian parents and grandparents have proudly watched their daughters’ and granddaughters’ sporting achievements: playing their first game, winning their first trophy, making their first state team, or getting their first professional contract.
Yet under Australia’s Sex Discrimination Act, sporting codes, clubs and volunteers can have legal action taken against them for offering single-sex women’s sport.
That’s why I’m drafting a Bill to put a stop to this and restore the rights of women and girls in sport.
