Victress: Women who paved the way in Australian Sport is an ode to some of Australia’s most cherished female athletes. These sportswomen have blazed a trail for their sisterhood, not just through their own achievements in their chosen sport, but through their unwavering conviction off the field as well.

With illustrations by Corinne Hall, Hobart Hurricanes Women’s Big Bash League captain, who honours each athlete through her unique artistic talents.

Mother, wife, partner, daughter, sister, niece, grandmother: every woman is a VICTRESS in her own unique and special way.

This book is an ode to some of Australia’s most cherished female athletes who, not just through achievements in their chosen sport, but through their unwavering conviction and commitment to women’s sport, blazed a trail for their sisterhood.

From legends like Dawn Fraser and Cathy Freeman to the new breed of powerful sportswomen like Ellyse Perry, Tayla Harris and Ash Barty, each athlete is honoured and celebrated, thanks to Hobart Hurricanes Women’s Big Bash League cricketer Corinne Hall’s unique artistic talents.

Inspired by these incredible women, Corinne takes readers on a journey into the lives of each athlete through both her stunning drawings and her authentic tales.

From personal interactions with the athletes to recall where she was when watching some of the iconic events that made them household names, Corinne provides a fresh but relatable perspective on how each has left an indelible mark on the exponential growth of the sport for women.

Kindness is key for Corinne, who has ensured funds from the book will be directed back into grassroots women’s cricket, along with helping the charitable organisation, The Kindness Factory, spread its positive message.

In keeping with the kindness theme, athletes have provided their own stories of kindness, unearthing the special role simple acts have played in their lives.
