It will also delve into the impacts of social media and cyber-bullying, after Harris' now-famous kicking photo in March 2019 led her to being subjected to sexist trolling.
Taken during her side’s final round match against the Western Bulldogs, Harris' incredible photo, taken by Michael Wilson, attracted “inappropriate and offensive” comments that the AFLW star labelled "repulsive."
"That is what I would consider sexual abuse on social media," Harris told RSN radio at the time.
She also reposted the shot on her Instagram feed, writing “My hamstring is okay, but derogatory and sexist comments aren’t.”
In August 2020, Harris wrote a reflective piece for marie claire Australia, where she shared her hopes for the future.
"I hope it is a place where aspiring female athletes are not challenged by multiple barriers that prevent them from achieving their dreams, while their male counterparts follow the yellow brick road to becoming professional sports stars," she wrote. "We don’t mind if our brick road isn’t yellow, hell, paint it rainbow and give a voice to the LGBTIQ+ community too—women are multitaskers after all, aren’t we?
"I am ambitious by nature, so I refuse to tone down my optimism. I believe many Australians’ attitudes need to change, but I do believe gender equality in sport is possible. I would also love to see the end of the tall poppy syndrome in Australia, replaced by a culture where we support each other and celebrate our achievements," she continued.
"Lastly, I see an Australia that is devoid of bullying. I am often in disbelief at the public display of bullying by our politicians. It is clear that it is a ‘top-down’ issue—young people see our leaders disrespecting each other, raising their voices, shaming each other’s work and they think this is OK. It then bleeds into the school rooms, social gatherings, online—a vicious cycle."
