Suzanne Wrack

Suzanne Wrack is the Guardian and Observer’s women’s football correspondent; the first person to hold this role at a national newspaper. In A Woman's Game, she explores the history of women’s football from the Victorian era – with players in high-heeled boots – to the present day. It is the story of a rise, fall, and rise again: from the game’s first appearance in England in the late nineteenth century; through the incredible teams which at their height in 1920 drew 53,000 spectators to Goodison Park; to its 50-year ban in the UK and, finally, to England’s triumphant summer of 2022.
