Podcast #4: Dr Kim Toffoletti

This week we chat to Dr Kim Toffoletti: academic, author, passionate footy fan and leading expert in the study of female sports fandom. Over several years, Kim has conducted research into sex, gender, diversity and Australian Rules football.

Tune in to to this podcast for a fascinating and wide-ranging discussion about women's unique relationship with Aussie Rules - including why it differs from other sports across the globe; why they become fans and the importance of footy in many women's lives.

We talk about inclusion, exclusion, sociality, tokenism and social change, along with the myths of female fandom, how women are challenging them and why that matters.
