While playing Aussie Rules Football for the Canadian National team in Melbourne, Australia; Gillian was sexually assaulted at a Team Canada sponsored party. The attack was encouraged by various members of the Canadian Men’s Team. AFL Canada has refused to take any action against the guilty parties for the past three years.
Get Around Me is a heartfelt and hilarious personal account of one woman’s journey into athleticism, and Aussie Rules Football; and the startling truths she uncovers there. A powerful story of strength and heartbreak, this is one footy player who won't take her sexual assault lying down!
