Over 5,000 nominations from across the UK and who came in at no. 17? Our very own EMMA BOOTH, congratulations Emma ! BBC Radio 4 Woman’s Hour is celebrating 30 outstanding women from across the UK who were nominated across five categories: Sportswomen, Leaders, Change-makers, Amplifiers and Grassroots. The Woman’s Hour Power List 2023: Women in Sport was decided by judging panel led by broadcaster Jessica Creighton, World Cup-winning cricketer and broadcaster Ebony Rainford-Brent, Olympic gold-medallist and broadcaster Sam Quek and record-breaking Paralympian Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson.
At a live reveal during Tuesday’s BBC Woman’s Hour broadcast from BBC House, Emma was announced at number 17 in the list, having been nominated in the Change-maker category for her work with TaylorMade and encouraging them to address their lack of female imagery and golf products for women.
Emma said, “I was surprised to be nominated and get the call from BBC Woman’s Hour, and even more surprised to make number 17 in the list. I’ll continue to push for women’s golf and inspire the next generation of girls and women to believe that golf is a sport for them”.
