All this week Sky Sports News HD has brought you interviews that champion inspirational women, honour their achievements and examine some of the challenges women face in sport.

Friday's celebrations kick off at 6am with a special all-female presenter line-up on 'Good Morning Sports Fans' - on Sky Sports News HD, channel 405 - hosted by Natalie Sawyer and Vicky Gomersall, who will have British racehorse trainer Venetia Williams among their guests.

Natalie and Vicky will then hot-foot it off the set at 10am and join us right here on skysports.com to answer your questions in a live web-chat.

Perhaps you'd like to ask Natalie about Brentford's prospects and get Vicky's views on Liverpool's season, or find out how they got into television and the challenges of presenting on Sky Sports News?

Or maybe you'd like to ask them a question about their sporting idols, their favourite SSN interviews or about women's sport in general.

e was right to leave, but not just because of the money City were coming into. If I remember rightly he had a reasonable amount of chances to shine at City, but he never passed the bloody ball.
