Play Fair

play-fairPlay Fair by Donna Gall (108 minutes)

PLAY FAIR is a compelling, unflinching and visually strong documentary that questions the assumption that women have reached full rights in sport. The film is rich in interviews with world-class Canadian athletes, coaches and activists, including Hayley Wickenheiser, Silken Laumann, Kallie Humphries and Abby Hoffman, as well as young athletes who are forging new paths. It explores the state of women’s rights at elite and community levels, on the fields and in boardrooms where sport decisions are made. Most importantly, it explores what the future holds for girls, women, sport bodies and sport policies in Canada.
Based on the Feminist History Society’s book, Playing It Forward: 50 years of women and sport in Canada. http://secondstorypress.ca/books/315-playing-it-forward
