How many can say they have taken on a sport's ruling fathers and won? Canberra's Stephanie Boxall can.
The women's ice hockey trailblazer will become the first woman inducted in the Australian ice hockey Hall of Fame on Saturday.
Her legacy cannot be understated.
The early 1980s was an era in which Australian ice hockey chiefs struggled with a surge in juniors, the demand for equality and fear of litigation should a female be seriously injured in contact in mixed-gender competitions.
Few females were offered the opportunity to play before Boxall launched a push to allow girls to compete at the national championships with boys.
She was successful in bucking the trend in a male-dominated sport on her way to becoming the Australian women's team's first captain.
Boxall led Australia at world championships and shattered records on a regular basis.

She will be inducted ahead of the Canberra Brave's clash with the Newcastle Northstars at the Phillip Swimming and Ice Skating Rink on Saturday.
The Brave will look continue their dominance off the back of Canadian sniper Jesse Gabrielle.
Gabrielle has been the x-factor for the Brave's offensive surge leading the team in scoring with 37 goals in 19 games.
"It's always good being a dominant scorer, but it's more about getting a good chemistry with my line mates and getting the wins every weekend," Gabrielle said.
"Stats are good but winning the cup at the end of the year is way more important."
"For me, it's my off season back home, so I needed a place to train and play.
"It's been really good, going into the last week of the year, it has been great on and off the ice."
Head coach Rob Starke says Gabrielle has been a revelation for the team looking to defend last year's championship win.
"Jesse has been a very prominent offensive threat since he arrived, he is a terrific player," Starke said.
