Glowing reviews for Breaking the Mould: Taking a Hammer to Sexism in Sport.

June 30, 2017

We’re thrilled to see that not long since its release, Angela Pippos’ Breaking the Mould has already been showered with glowing reviews from all sides:

‘[Breaking the Mould is] a timely, lively and lucid account of the tribulations — but also the increasing triumphs — of women in sport, as they seek to level a playing field long tilted in favour of men … a vital contribution to the debate on women in sport.’

‘Pippos’ discussion of the ingrained bias against women in sport is framed within an unabashed, feminist context and supported by statistical evidence, a variety of studies and drawn from her own considerable experience as a one of the few female sports journalist … In her innervating and timely book Angela Pippos has supplied some great ammunition for the cause of girls and women in sport.’

‘A truly marvellous book … like having a fabulously extended, engaging deep and meaningful conversation with Angela. [She] speaks on behalf of all those girls and women who know that playing sport makes them feel powerful and strong and free.’
Dr Clare Wright, best-selling author of Beyond the Ladies Lounge: Australia’s Female Publicans and The Forgotten Rebels of Eureka

We congratulate Angela and look forward to the continued success of this compelling book!
