Sallyanne Atkinson was the first female Lord Mayor of Brisbane, the first female senior trade commissioner to Paris and has been a leader in business and corporate life for over four decades. No Job for a Woman takes us from her wartime childhood in Sri Lanka through her early career as a journalist and TV personality into her life in politics. For the first time Sallyanne Atkinson offers a behind-the-scenes look at her dynamic and colourful life, including her involvement in three Olympics bids.
A trailblazer for working mothers, Sallyanne shares the challenges and the triumphs of raising five children while forging a high-profile career. With her characteristic warmth and humour, she shows how she defied the expectations of a generation.
