A New Documentary Is Shining A Light On The Trailblazing Women Of The AFLW

Fearless: The Inside Story of the AFLW drops from 24 August on Disney+.

While Women’s Health may be know primarily as the leader in the health and fitness space, another huge part of what we do revolves around supporting the incredible female athletes that Australia is proud to call their own. So when an initiative comes around that gives any women’s league the eyeballs it deserves, we get VERY excited.

Coming to Disney+ via weekly episode drops from the 24 August, “Fearless: The Inside Story of the AFLW” is a raw, emotional documentary set to explore the dreams, struggles and triumphs of the ground-breaking AFLW league.

The six-part series, spotlighting four clubs: Adelaide Crows, Collingwood, GWS GIANTS, and Western Bulldogs, follows the journeys of women who were told they could never play Australian Rules football at the highest level, but made it happen.

The series will explore the journey, sacrifice and history in the making, as the trailblazing women of the AFLW pave the way in professional sport and help change the sporting and cultural psyche of Australia.

“Fearless: The Inside Story of the AFLW is the first of our nine Australian originals set to premiere this year and next. We’re thrilled to be bringing to Disney+ this world-first look at the AFLW and the powerhouse movement it has become for women in sport. The documentary celebrates the journey of trailblazing women – some of the first to play Australian Rules Football professionally. The documentary showcases extraordinary women who are paving the way for future generations and chasing football glory in their own unique ways,” explains Kylie Watson-Wheeler, Senior Vice President and Managing Director of The Walt Disney Company in Australia and New Zealand.

“Over the last six seasons of the NAB AFLW competition, our remarkable W players have captured the hearts and minds of footy fans all over the world with the pure joy and determination in which they approach their footy,” adds Kylie Rogers, Executive General Manager Customer & Commercial, AFL. “The Disney+ team captures the essence of AFLW in Fearless – it’s a mixture of pure emotion, hard-hitting footy, and all the highs and lows that the world of football offers – and we get front-row seats to it all. We’re thrilled to have worked with the Disney+ team in bringing this documentary series to life.”

Tune in tomorrow on Disney+.
