AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Pat Giles was dedicated to improving the lives of the disadvantaged. As an ALP Senator in the Hawke and Keating governments, she entered Parliament, not as a raw recruit, but as an experienced trade unionist, policy maker, feminist campaigner and grassroots activist.

This is the story of a woman whose determination never faltered, whose work ethic never flagged, the story of an activist working from within the established order to effect social change.' (From the publisher's website.)

Notes

  • Epigraph:

    To be among the chosen who have struggled and suffered for principles enunciated down the ages by those who have loved liberty, is sufficient recompense for a long life dedicated to 'the Women's Cause.'

    Irene Greenwood (1898-1992), feminist activist, pacifist, broadcaster, writer, and mentor to Pat Giles.
