I started reading this seriously academic book as part of preparation for this doco and got as far as the foreward. I found the combination of a full time job, pedantic-need-to-keep-house-clean attitude, and ad hoc jobs for this doco just a little too much for my brain to cope with so I tried a little lighter reading and picked up a Roald Dahl favourite: Matilda.
The title of the book is the same name as Australia’s national women’s football team so it qualifies as “research”. If you have not read the book then it is about a young girl who is incredibly bright and discovers a magical talent that helps her save her favourite teacher. It has a happy ending, an ending that Australia will be hoping for their Matildas at the FIFA Women’s World Cup in Germany.
