This year was a huge year for women’s sports with the Women’s World Cup, Netball World Cup, Women’s Ashes and the Golf
Open attracting more mainstream media coverage, viewers and social media engagement than ever before. The football
tournament culminated in a peak of 11.7m for England’s semifinal Vs the USA – the highest-peak audience for any TV show so
far this year. But has 2019 been the turning point that everyone expected? Our panel ask how we can build on these foundations, improve gender equality and relegate the phrase ‘throw like a girl’ to the past.
