The other day Sophie turned 6. She is the little voice you hear say "YOU'RE LISTENING TO THE OUTER SANCTUM PODCAST". She had a cracking birthday which culminated with Katie Brennan and Mel Hickey instigating the Change Her Game function members to sing her Happy Birthday. Sophie will never forget this night. She will also never remember a time when strong, awesome women didn't play professional football. Her teenage years will be supported with images and messages of strong, fun,fit, healthy women doing awesome things. This is in no small part thanks to Alison Smirnoff and Change Her Game. Alison is an agitator of change, a supporter of change and an agent of change. We are proud to know her and support her. Huge thanks and congratulations to Al. Change Her Game has some exciting programs in the pipeline which will also change the game for women. - Emma Race
