UnCover Event: Levelling the playing field- Women's sport in the media | Lucky's Speakeasy | Thursday, 26. September 2019

Female elite athletes are still paid a fraction of their male counterparts despite winning championships, endorsements and dominating headlines. What role does the media play in changing the perception of women's sport? And how is the ACT leading this charge? 
Join host and veteran sports journalist, Tim Gavel and a panel for a conversation around the rise of women's sport on the national and international stage, and just how far we have to go until we can reach an even playing field.
Grab a drink, some food and become part of the conversation. You can also engage with the conversation online through our social media channels.
