Minister for Women, Senator the Hon. Michaelia Cash, awarded Ellyse Perry with the award for Most Outstanding Woman in Sport at last night’s 2015 I Support Women in Sport Awards.

Run by Australian Women’s Health Magazine, the awards honour Australian women making exceptional contributions to sport.

Minister Cash said sporting heroes in Australia often assume a uniquely powerful role and Ellyse has already demonstrated she is a natural leader.

“Honouring the outstanding achievements of sportswomen like Ellyse will inspire young girls and women to realise their own potential, be it on the sporting field or elsewhere,” Minister Cash said.

“Ellyse is an extraordinary young woman and that is why she has received this honour.”

“Her many sporting accolades speak for themselves, however Ellyse is also showing tremendous leadership off the field.”

Highlighting the importance of women in leadership roles, Minister Cash and Minister for Sport Sussan Ley also reiterated the Government’s commitment of $750,000 over three years to the Women Leaders in Sport (WLIS) programme. The programme is designed to ensure talented female sporting leaders are given every opportunity to reach their full potential in sport.

“By supporting these awards and the WLIS programme, the Government is enabling more women to reach their own potential and realise their leadership capacity,” Minister Cash said.

Minister Ley said the programme is targeted at increasing female representation in sport leadership roles and has provided support for more than 22,000 Australian women since its inception in 2002.

“One of the constants we see in Australian sport, and which is again demonstrated by Ellyse Perry’s recognition, is the outstanding achievements of our female athletes, coaches and administrators on the international stage,” Minister Ley said.

“We are lucky to have so many outstanding women involved in sport but there is still room for many more to pursue leadership roles.”
