Reviews

As someone who is both a footy fan and a feminist, and sometimes has trouble reconciling the two, I was both interested in and wary about reading this book. I was expecting some challenging, uncomfortable reading, and Night Games certainly provided. Krien pulls together a wealth of interviews, experiences and research, focussing particularly on one court case but looks at footy culture (AFL, NRL and other sports) more broadly too. Krien recognises and explores grey areas in the macho culture, and the drinking, wild nights and exploitation of women that can surround it. She looks at what happens when footy celebration nights of debauchery turn bad, when the line between consensual sex and something nearer to rape is blurred. Night Games closely examines the shortcomings of the Australian legal system relating to sexual abuse cases. An important book.
