During March we will be publishing a list of women who are involved in sports in the Cayman Islands 


Maya Willis

U18 Cayman Rugby National Captain

‘The women of today are stronger than ever, being a part of a generation where women don’t let the standards of the past define them shaped me into the leader that I am today. Being a young woman in sport helped me to be the best version of myself and I am so thankful for the women that fought for us to have equity in today’s world’. #EmbraceEquity.

Shaunagh Brown.

England rugby international.

Cayman rugby coach.


“I was lucky enough to grow up in a house and family where equity was embraced every day. But we didn’t call it that, for me it was just about playing with and keeping up with my boy cousins. I was always allowed to be the playful, active child I wanted to be. And almost by accident it meant I’ve always been comfortable in this man’s world we live in. Now it’s time to recognise the differences and embrace equity within it. We are not just small men, we are women with our own needs and requirements. Let’s start talking about them”.

Mercedes Foy
