Description

Cheryl's struggle to be heard and taken seriously for her intellectual contribution mirrors the struggles of many women. She gives her perspective on why the Labor experiment didn't work. She challenges the shallow media interpretations of how 'good' and 'successful' politicians should behave and how politics should be conducted. this is the story of a woman, who was also a politician. As one leading Australian politician once told her, 'Don't be scripted by mugs, love!'. She's ready to admit that she was and the rest is history. In her own words, 'I want my knowledge of recent history to rank alongside the mythologies for women to understand. they are wondering what happened.'
