The Women in Sport Podcast: Tess Howard, England and Team GB hockey player described as “one of the most exciting young talents in world hockey.”

We are delighted to share the third episode of our Women in Sport Podcast, where we discuss developments, initiatives, and issues relating to women in sports and the associated legal implications.

In this episodePartner Emma Bartlett and Trainee Solicitor Mitchell Blythe are joined by a special guest, Tess Howard, who plays hockey for both Team GB and England and was described by England Hockey as ‘one of the most exciting young talents in world hockey.’ Having recognised that women are put or can be put at a disadvantage from a young age through to professional life by sportswear, Tess has actively done something about it. In this podcast we discuss the following:

  1. Tess’s journey in hockey from winning Bronze at the 2018 European Junior Championship to returning from a serious injury to play in the 2022 World Cup and then go on to score in the 2022 Commonwealth Games Final to lead England to gold.
  2. Tess’s work as the Founder and Director of Inclusive Sportsweara non-profit community-interest company who are dedicated to making more inclusive physical activity and sports clothing policies for schools, clubs, sports organisations, national governing bodies and brands.
  3. The way in which sportswear disadvantages and can act as a barrier to women in sports compared to men and what can be done to accelerate the development of women in sports.

You can also listen to the episode on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or SoundCloud.
