It’s been a cracker 12 months for Aus­tralia’s sport­ing women. Meg Lan­ning (cover) led the Aussie cricket team to Ashes vic­tory, na­tional net­ball team the Di­a­monds snatched the World Cup, the Matil­das (soc­cer) went fur­ther in their World Cup than their man coun­ter­parts ever have and who can for­get jockey Michelle Payne’s ride into Mel­bourne Cup his­tory? Yep, 2015 was the pin­na­cle for women in sport. But when it comes to re­mu­ner­at­ing our pro­fes­sional sports­peo­ple of the fe­male per­sua­sion or even watch­ing their feats on TV, that’s where it re­mains less some­thing to crow about. Read Rosie King’s re­port on page 4. And en­joy our Aussie-flavoured is­sue.
