38. PEGGY O’NEAL – The Puma Fearless Series

President of the Richmond Football Club, Peggy O’Neal, wants support for women and girls to pursue careers in sport, on and off the field.

Peggy became a Richmond Football Club member after moving to the suburb from the USA and developing a love for the sport and the Club. She’s progressed from being a member, to sitting on the Richmond board, to becoming the AFL’s first female president. In that time, she’s seen the establishment of Richmond’s AFLW side and the men’s first premiership win in 37 years.

Peggy joins Sam Squiers to discuss the growth of the AFLW, creating pathways for other women to take on leadership positions in sport, and how it felt to see the Tigers win a premiership in 2017 after a 37-year drought (and two more premierships since then).

37. ROSIE KING – The Puma Fearless Series

CEO of Netball Victoria and Melbourne Vixens, Rosie King OAM wants to see the Suncorp Super Netball competition expand and provide more opportunities for elite netballers.

Rosie has held leadership roles in some of Australia and New Zealand’s largest companies, but it’s Netball Victoria where she’s been able to have the greatest impact on women’s sport.

Rosie joins Sam Squiers to discuss getting her first taste of CEO leadership at the Geelong Football Club, changing misconceptions about netball and what needs to happen for the Super Netball competition to grow.

36. SABRINA FREDERICK – The Puma Fearless Series

Marquee AFLW player Sabrina Frederick wants her sport to professionalise. Sabrina fell in love with AFL after moving from England to Western Australia as a kid but was shocked to learn she couldn’t play Australia’s national sport at the top level. To continue playing, Sabrina joined the women’s team when she was in her early teens and moved across the country to play for the Brisbane Lions in the first season of the AFLW. Sabrina joins Sam Squiers to discuss finding her love for the game again after two Grand Final losses, finding confidence through sport and how she is using her platform and profile to be a powerful voice for fight for equality.
