The Women’s Footy Almanac 2018 was launched on Sep 4 at the North Fitzroy Arms. A great night was had by all.


The book is an account of the 2018 AFLW season during which women’s footy continued to develop as both a game and a beacon for social change.


Our writers tell the story of each game while addressing the many issues which emerged during the season. They are observers, analysts and fans.


In addition to the match reports, the book includes comment pieces, player interviews and profiles, some poetry and more.


Highlights of The Women’s Footy Almanac 2018 include:


  • A welcome from Yvette Wroby
  • A reflection on falling back in love with footy by academic Deb Waterhouse-Watson
  • The next instalment of Bonnie Norman’s junior footy career
  • Kate O’Halloran’s Season Review
  • Kasey Symons’ player interviews with Sophie Conway, Karen Paxman, Hannah Scott, Isabel Huntington, Bonnie Toogood and Tiarna Ernst
  • David Wilson’s and what footy means to his daughters
  • A Grand Final wrap-up from diehard Bulldogs fan Kirby Fenwick
  • A playful quatrain for every round by poet and Pies fan Damian Balassone
  • A focus on the inaugural AFLW Pride Game with comment from Jackie Lynch, Bobby Macumber and Lucy Watkin


The cover art, by Essendon FC VFLW player, Kendra Heil, features Hannah Scott in a moment of Western Bulldogs’ triumph.
