Gender Equity: What Will It Take To Be The Best Report

Gender Equity: What Will It Take To Be The Best is a report commissioned by the Richmond Football Club as part as a three year affirmative action plan to improve the position of women.  The report found that there was widespread cynicism about the AFL's commitment to gender equity.  This has always been apparent in there response to sexual assault which is far less rigorous than there response to racism or homophobia.
The reports recommendations will be rolled out over the next two years at Richmond and overseen by the report's authors Dr Pippa Grange and Paul Oliver.  It will be interesting to see whether improved staff gender mix also improves the behaviour of the young players.
