Even Girls Play Footy

Three young girls challenge the football establishment for the right to play the game they love.

This insightful and moving documentary goes behind the scenes on a legal case fought by three Melbourne schoolgirls who, in 2003, took Football Victoria to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal to defend their right to play Australian Rules Football with their boys teams. Now, almost ten years later, they reflect on their battle, and the changes they brought about by bravely standing up for what they believed in.

Funded by the Victoria Law Foundation and produced by Endangered Pictures this entertaining and accessible film is a wonderful resource for educators and adolescent health service providers, particularly targeted at secondary school students and beyond, in the subject areas of legal studies, gender studies, media studies and health.
