Our latest release is Sally Freedman’s "Get Your Tits Out for the Lads" which takes readers on an extraordinary journey through the masculine and enigmatic world of football, offering a unique perspective from an intelligent and ambitious woman.
"Get Your Tits Out for the Lads" delves into the exhilarating highs, the heart-breaking lows, and the awe-inspiring moments that defined Sally’s experience as a woman working in football in Australia, New Zealand, and Europe.
Sally’s candid storytelling starts with an anecdote from Portugal in 2004 where she describes a moment which explains the book’s title. She then takes the reader on a journey from Portugal in 2004 to Switzerland in 2022 with a humorous and sometimes acerbic narrative which includes some gripping behind the scenes insights from her working life at football clubs and international governing bodies.
While “Get Your Tits Out for the Lads” is entertaining, it also provides a genuine insight into the realities of navigating a world traditionally dominated by men. Through her personal triumphs, setbacks, and unwavering resilience, Sally tells a brave and compelling story which shines an important light on sexism, misogyny, and gender equality.
Sally Freedman will be one of the guests at the forthcoming Football Writers’ Festival to be held in Sydney from 15-17th July, days prior to the opening match of the FIFA Women’s World Cup. The festival brings together a melting pot of readers, authors, writers, and interested voices in an environment that encourages and inspires meaningful and respectful debate and discussion.
