The Australian Women's Archives Project has successfully challenged the dearth of coverage of Australian women athletes, from the past to the present, by creating this website. Visitors should definitely read the "Introduction" to gain a better understanding of why women's sports coverage is lacking or buried deeply in the sports section. The "Stories" section of the site should be required reading for all young girls interested in sports, whether Australian or Argentinian. There are over one dozen stories of Australian women athletes, from as far back as 1916 to the present. There are also several women's teams whose stories are presented. The "Medalists" section includes not only gold medalists at the Commonwealth or Empire Games, but by clicking on the "Switch to Olympic Medalists and Participants" link on the top left or bottom of the page, visitors can see that Australian women were taking medals in swimming as early as the 1912 Olympics in Stockholm.
