The Footy Lady

Stephanie Asher

No tragedy, no challenge, has proved too hard for Susan Alberti.

The woman from the working-class suburbs has battled boardrooms, courts, lymphoma and adult diabetes;and was one of the driving forces behind the AFL’s move into women’s football.

When her first husband was killed by a truck, Susan took over their construction business, becoming a female pioneer in the building industry. When her daughter was diagnosed with type-1 diabetes she embarked on a mission to find a cure. When her beloved football club the Western Bulldogs was threatened with annihilation she worked as vice-president to bring home the 2016 premiership flag. Confronted with the exclusion of women from AFL, she battled to open the game to all and kept up the fight with money and on-ground support when others were ready to signal defeat.

This is a story of passion, generosity and a woman who will inspire you to take on the seemingly impossible and triumph.
