From Moree to Mabo: The Mary Gaudron Story
From Moree to Mabo is the story of Mary Gaudron QC, the first female justice of the High Court of Australia and paints a compelling portrait of a dynamic woman and her extensive contributions to the Australian legal system.
In a groundbreaking career, Mary Gaudron passionately championed gender equality and indigenous rights, ruling on landmark decisions such as Mabo and Wik. She also appeared in the Equal Pay case for the Whitlam Government. From her formative years spent in a NSW country town to being appointed the first female justice of the High Court of Australia (1987), author Pamela Burton conveys the extraordinary life of one of our most colourful High Court judges.
