‘Ladies and gentlemen, and those who are yet to make up their minds…’ Would you be surprised if I told you that this was a pre-game announcement at the football? Last weekend, the inaugural Pride Game took place between St Kilda and the Sydney Swans, a game that aimed to celebrate diversity, as well as…

side by side: women to watch at the 2016 rio olympic games

Danielle Croci
No comments

Can you believe the Rio Olympics are here? For the first time, Australia will be sending more female athletes than men to the games, with the last-minute qualification of Australia’s women’s eight rowing team after Russia’s ban pushing us over the line to 50.6%. That means there are more women than ever to watch this…

side by side: on representation in coaching

Danielle Croci
No comments

    Why is it such a familiar sight to see coaching and administration in women’s sport still made up predominantly of men? What does this mean for the women trying to break into this industry? I got thinking about this after discussions on Twitter about Carlton choosing Damien Keeping as their coach for the…

kill pill: part seventeen – exploding heart technique

Madeleine Ryan
No comments

This is the final instalment of Kill Pill. To follow Madeleine’s personal journey, check out the archives. There’s something unsettling about this column ending on the number 17. My first thought was ‘they need to end on an even number’, then my second thought was, ‘well, nothing ends on an even number’. So here we…

No comments

Content warning: violence against women Sometimes it feels as if women have daily reminders that they are unwelcome in the hyper-masculine domain of sport. But nothing seems to have touched a nerve recently like Eddie McGuire and Co.’s comments about journalist Caroline Wilson last week. For those in the dark, radio station Triple M’s coverage…

kill pill: part sixteen – let the right one in

Madeleine Ryan
No comments

Pill must be getting killed because I feel way out of my depth. There’s something rejuvenating about finding yourself in unchartered territory, though. It means you’re alive and you don’t know everything. It’s a relief.   I had a dream about two little boys that my boyfriend and I had to care for. They weren’t…

Danielle Croci
No comments

    The federal election is now less than a month away, and in the past week or two, the issue of women’s participation in sport has managed to make its way onto the mainstream agenda. It appears that the two major parties are vying to demonstrate who is better committed to women’s sport. With…

kill pill: part fifteen – they shall not pass

Madeleine Ryan
No comments

  Content warning: this article contains discussion of sexual assault and rape culture. There is a man following me. In order to make sense of this, I’ve decided to ornately frame it in the context of killing pill. Because it seems a lot of power comes with having a female form. And reopening the part…

side by side: a guide to the matildas

Danielle Croci
No comments

The Rio Olympics are coming up in August, and I was shocked to discover that I know very little about our national women’s soccer* team. When I think of the Matildas, my mind conjures up a mix of highs and lows – the team’s great successes but also their lengthy pay disputes and volatile playing…

Madeleine Ryan

Kill Pill resumes after a one week hiatus as a fortnightly column. Be sure to check back regularly for instalments. I didn’t write about this when it happened because I didn’t want my parents to find out about it. I’m 27 going on 17. A very wise woman friend suggested that my body may be reverting…

side by side: a mother’s duty

Danielle Croci
One comment

Sunday was Mothers’ Day. As with any holiday or event, brands and companies jumped at the chance to make reference to the day in an attempt to stay relevant. Sporting teams and leagues were no different, and Mothers’ Day brought a plethora of posts thanking mothers for their contribution to sport. A nice sentiment, right?…

kill pill: part thirteen – the girl who does too much

Madeleine Ryan

Eat, sleep, bleed, repeat. The last week has been an anomaly. It’s no wonder that menstruation can also be called a period, because the definition I found online under “physics” said a period was: The interval of time between successive occurrences of the same state in an oscillatory or cyclic phenomenon, such as a mechanical…

kill pill: part twelve – meet your royal guinea pigness

  Killing pill is like a spinning wheel and this little guinea-piggy finally landed on red. I got my first period after three months and only a withdrawal bleed to my name. The plot bloodies and thickens, as most timeless tales are wont to do. Given the focus of last week’s column, this is –…
