    This is the story of a high school English teacher from northwest Tasmania who became a fiery environmental warrior, state and federal parliamentarian and leader of a national political party. In it, former Greens leader Christine Milne tells her extraordinary story by writing about objects that have symbolic meaning in her life, including the Pride T-shirt she wore walking in Mardi Gras next to her son after years of fighting for the legal reform of gay rights in Tasmania. Milne describes how politics actually works: the deals, the promises kept and broken, the horse-trading and treachery involved. An Activist Life is also a fascinating insider’s account of how hard – but also how rewarding – it is to be a woman in Australian politics.
