In this intimate account of her life, Ita Buttrose shares the story of what it is to be a woman in changing times, responding to challenges - both professional and personal.
A woman of strong opinions, Ita has never been shy of controversy or difficult issues. In the course of an exciting and successful career, she has been a crusader who, more than once, has had to reinvent herself. From her position as respected stateswoman, Ita explores such varied subjects as the value of friendship; the shifting role of women and men; the changing nature of families; the ageing of our population; and the need for vision and leadership to steer Australia in the new millennium.
This is the autobiography of one of Australia's most prominent and admired women and yet it is more. It is also the story of Australian women over the last forty-five years.
