No Ordinary Lives — Pioneering women in Australian politics

By Cathy Jenkins

They were and they are political pioneers—blazing a trail for women in Australian politics by being the first of their gender to become members of parliament, ministers or heads of government. No Ordinary Lives spans eighty-six years of Australian political history, from the election of Edith Cowan, the first female MP, to Anna Bligh, the first female Premier of Queensland. Every woman has a remarkable story to tell, and for some it is the first time their story has been told.
