Women in Sport: Overcoming and Succeeding

Edith Morley Lecture 2020 – guest panel discussion

To mark International Women’s Day, we are delighted to present this annual event in memory of Edith Morley, with a panel discussion bringing together female innovators and game-changers from the sporting world. Historically, sports have been a male dominated arena with very low numbers of women involved. Today, the number of female athletes are rising significantly, yet, women’s sports are highly underrepresented in the media, and female athletes earn considerably less than their male counterparts.

A guest panel will cover a wide range of topics including how these remarkable sportswomen have overcome barriers and gone onto achieve great success in their fields. The panel includes Fara Williams, Reading FC Women and England player, Kelly Chambers, Director of Women’s and Girls Football, Reading FC Women, Cath Bishop, Olympic Rower, and Alice Kirkup, Captain of the University of Reading’s netball first team.
