Women in Sport

International Women's Day, held on 8 March, celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

The Hall of Champions acknowledges the 84 women on the Roll of Honour who have achieved the pinnacle of their sport. Representing 24 different sports since 1912, these athletes have been pioneers, broken barriers and world records. Many are household names, such as swimmers Dawn Fraser, Shane Gould and surfing’s Layne Beachley. They include Australia’s first woman to win an Olympic gold medal in swimming, Sarah ‘Fanny’ Durack, Paralympic powerhouse Louise Sauvage and two Matildas pioneers, Julie Dolan and Cheryl Salisbury.
