The Climb : conversations with Australian women in power

Iconic journalist and television presenter Geraldine Doogue turns her attention to an issue central to our times. How are we, as women, represented at the top levels of power in Australia? In candid and personal conversations with fourteen women leading the way in fields as wide-ranging as business, politics, religion, education and the armed forces, Doogue gets to the heart of what it means to be a woman in power in Australia. Inspiring and insightful, The Climb reveals a varied and at times quite unexpected picture of contemporary Australia.
