Warringah MP Zali Steggall has said she’ll continue to fight for gender equality, by encouraging men to invade women’s sports.
The MP was under fire this week for suggesting opposition to transmen playing women’s sports was purely transphobia and that young women should allow themselves to be injured against men.
“Of all the issues pre-election this is definitely the hill to die on,” Steggall said.
“Sure, I never would have beaten Alberto Tomba if I had raced against him but that’s for someone else to achieve in the battle for true equality.”
Steggall says she intends to lead a campaign to have Hannah Mouncey play in the AFLW next season.
