The Trailblazing Story of Susan Alberti

The Footy Lady

Stephanie Asher
True tale of a trailblazer
The extraordinary story of Susan Alberti, a lady of many firsts.

The woman from the working-class suburbs has battled boardrooms, cancer, diabetes, open-heart surgery and shed 59 kilos—half her body weightmdash;on the road to recovery. She has stared down adversity and prevailed.

When her first husband was killed by a truck, Susan took over their construction business. When her only child Danielle died from type 1 diabetes, she embarked on a global mission to find a cure.

Confronted with the exclusion of women players from AFL, she fought to open the game to all.
