An Activist Life
An Activist Life is the story of an apparently ordinary woman - a high-school teacher from Tasmania - who became a fiery environmental warrior and social justice advocate, pitted against the most powerful forces in the country. In this fascinating memoir, Christine Milne shares her life through objects that have symbolic meaning - from the butter pats in her kitchen representing her journey from farm girl to global activist, to the Pride t-shirt she wore walking in the Mardi Gras parade next to her son. A revealing insider's account of what it means to be a woman in Australian politics, An Activist Life also chronicles the fight to save the planet and offers an empowering vision for the future.
