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 have introduced a Bill to put a stop to this and restore the rights of women and girls in sport.
