Anne Summers Unfettered and Alive: Anne Summers and Julia Baird

Audio from FWF18 Sydney: Anne Summers Unfettered and Alive.

Dr Anne Summers AO has been defying expectations her entire life. Her extraordinary career as a journalist, author, policy maker, activist, bureaucrat, board member, editor and publisher, has seen her travel the world, leading feminist debate, advising prime ministers, presiding over Greenpeace International and producing and writing influential journalism and books. She has walked away from success and charged down new paths, to satisfy her restlessness and help herself, and us all, see things differently, and expand what is possible.
