Petitioning The Australian Media

Cover women’s sport as much as men’s. Or at least as much as horses!

The overwhelming dominance of male sport in the media perpetuates stale gender-role stereotypes, limiting the diversity of role-models for kids and curbing their potential.
According to the Australian Government study ‘Towards a Level Playing Field’, male sport receives 84% of television sports coverage while female sport get’s just 6%; that’s less than horses!
