Jills Angus Burney tackles sheep shearing challenges

In the world of sheep shearing, men and women compete on the same playing field - but is it a level playing field?

Jills Angus Burney is a Kiwi who sat at the very top of that world.

Once a former world champ and record holder, Jills sheared 541 lambs in nine hours.

She's one of the breakout stars in the new film She Shears, which turns gender assumptions on their head.

She joined The AM Show on Thursday to discuss the successes and challenges.
