AFL’s announcement of Hannah Mouncey’s ineligibility has caused a massive backlash in the media. Snedden Hall & Gallop’s Sport Law team of Allistar Twigg and Catherine Ordway have authored an article on The Conversation discussing the decision to exclude Mouncey, anti-discrimination law and the AFL’s public position on diversity and inclusivity.

In this developing story, Allistar and Catherine explain how the AFL reached their decision and what needs to happen now. You can find out more about the Hannah Mouncey exclusion on the The Conversation.

Catherine Ordway will also be featured this Sunday, 22 October 2017 on ABC Radio with Tracey Holmes’ The Ticket at 11am. The whole program will be devoted to the topic of transgender athletes and sport.
