For more than 50 years, Wendy McCarthy has been on the leading edge of Australian feminism, and her trailblazing advocacy and leadership have made her a widely respected and revered figure: a woman who shaped her times as much as she was shaped by them. Now, at 80 years of age, she shares her remarkable life and achievements. From sheltered country schoolgirl to relentless campaigner for abortion and contraception, from passionate teacher to lifelong advocate for education, Wendy smashed the glass ceiling again and again. She has championed change in human rights, public health, overseas aid and development, conservation, heritage, media and the Arts. This inspiring and enlightening memoir is filled with cautionary tales and insider stories about being female in Australia; as well as a few helpful survival tips. Above all, it encourages the reader to find their own voice - and listen to it.
