‘A woman’s place is in the Senate.’
Vale Susan Ryan
Courageous Susan saw the need for change and took on the system to improve the lives of Australians. She is the ultimate feminist poster girl in Australia in my view. In her 1999 memoir, Catching the Waves, Susan wrote that she was driven by the view that women should be able to pursue opportunities unencumbered by stifling stereotypes. There should be no unfair obstacles put in the way of their achieving independence. Women and men should be judged on their merits, not on how far they reinforce some socially useful or commercially contrived norm.
