Synopsis: This is the remarkable story of Mary Gaudron AC QC, the first female justice of the high court of Australia. Gaudron grew up within Moree's railway community in New South Wales, where she lived as a child in a cottage with dirt floors. Her assent to justice of the high court of Australia is an amazing and empowering tale of strength and courage. With wit, astonishing intellect, and the tool of the law, Gaudron exposed inequality and discrimination in the workforce and campaigned vigorously for women to be accorded equal pay and equal opportunities. Years later, she went on to become one of the justices who ruled on Eddie Mabo's landmark case regarding Aboriginal land rights. From Moree to Mabo is written by Pamela Burton, who is well regarded in the Australian legal community. When Burton faced similar obstacles as one of the few women commencing private legal practice in the 1970s, she received encouragement and support from the brave convention breaker, Mary Gaudron.

Book Description UWA Publishing, Australia, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. `I appointed Mary Gaudron to the High Court of Australia because I knew her to have a keen mind and a good heart: two very important attributes for a judge. Robert J. Hawke, Prime Minister of Australia 1983-1991 `Great courts need formal, predictable and unerringly polite judges with quiet voices and serene personalities. But to fulfil their true greatness, they also need lateral thinkers, people with unusual backgrounds who can be noisy, with fiery tempers and occasional minds and tongues to match. It will be a while before there is another judge in Australia s apex court quite like Mary Gaudron. The Hon. Michael Kirby AC CMG In 1987 Mary Gaudron became the first female justice of the High Court of Australia. In fact, this brilliant, brash and outspoken lawyer had a lot of firsts. A passionate advocate of human rights, her working-class background and the racism she observed as a child growing up in a country town were indelible influences on her career. With an effusive Foreword by The Hon. Michael Kirby AC CMG, From Moree to Mabo investigates Gaudron s contributions to our history and law, and it paints a compelling portrait of this dynamic woman and her unflinching commitment to improving the lives of all Australians. The author speaks about her book on ABC TV. Seller Inventory # AAV9781742580982
