She Shears



She Shears


Wednesday 7 August 8.30pm Channel 039

In the gruelling world of competitive sheep shearing, there is no women’s section. Women and men compete together. She Shears is the story of passion, purpose and determination and five women for whom shearing is more than just a job. These five women blow away stereotypes and sexism in the traditionally male world of sheep shearing. Two are legends of the sport, Emily Welch and Jills Angus Burney (also a High Court barrister). The other three are hoping to make their mark with the blades at the sport's pinnacle: Masterton’s Golden Shears. Produced by Ainsley Gardiner & Georgina Conder (The Breaker Upperers).
