Dual code international Ellyse Perry has said it is key younger women have access to role models to pursue their sporting passion.
Last month, the Commonwealth Bank, a partner with Cricket Australia, released new research which revealed only two-thirds of Australians agreed kids should be getting more exposure to female sporting role models.
The survey which was undertaken by ACA Research surveyed 1,027 Australians over the age of 18.
The research also showed one in two couldn't name a current female athlete.
While those survey may not be sports fans, it shows the lack of access young girls has to women's sports stars.
This comes after a successful Women's Ashes series last year but also a year which saw the Matildas climb to fourth in the world rankings.
Not only this but the inaugural season of the AFLW launched.
The survey also when choosing their favourite sportsperson it came down to one simple factor...seeing them on television.
However, access to women's sport on television is still limited in 2018.
The three most watch or listen to women's sport in Australia (based on the percentage watching or listening once a month) is cricket, AFL and soccer.
In the second season of the WBBL 10 games including the semi-finals and final were broadcasted on TV, while the rest of the match could be streamed through the Cricket Australia Live app, which cost $29.99 per year.
