Episode 26: Consent in Sport with Dr Indigo Willing and Dr Adele Pavlidis
Play • 33 min

Today on The Gender Card, we delve into the contested territory that overlaps consent and sport. Griffith University’s Dr Indigo Willing is leading the research project called Red Flags, Banter and Blurred Lines: Exploring Consent in Sport. She’s working alongside Dr Adele Pavlidis, going where many have feared to tread, asking male sports leaders about respectful relationships and how to better prevent violence against women. With Dr Willing’s background as a skateboarding and masculinities expert, combined with Dr Pavlidis’s expertise as a roller derby and women in sports scholar,  both sociologists hope to reveal why cultures of exclusion and harm persist in sport, despite many official programs especially designed to tackle the problem. And as they reveal in this interview with Nance Haxton, issues of power, masked by banter on the sporting field are a central aspect of this dilemma.
