Abstract

The demand that transgender women be accorded their human right to play sport at all levels has challenged thinking in the sports industry. The Australian Football League’s decision to exclude transgender woman Hannah Mouncey from competing in its premier women’s league but allow her to continue to play in the lower, state, leagues appears inconsistent and raises a number of issues. Sports administrators and members of the public are asking: What do we mean by fairness and a ‘level playing field’?; how do we define ‘women’ in women’s sport?; and does binary sex segregation in sport still hold any relevance or benefit in the future?
