This book paints an authentic picture of the person who headed up Australia's Equality Opportunity Commission at I time of political turmoil, change and challenge. Beyond that, it also provides a comprehensive, evidence-based argument that is not at all overstated, about the current status of human rights policy and practices in within Australia that belie that the moral stance that our leaders adopt in the global stage. It is not a book to read in a rush. It can be read in parts and each needs to absorbed and contemplated before taking each new issue raised. The first two chapters are compelling reading and after these, the book provides opportunities for slow, reflective, learning. This is a reading must for anyone who care about civil rights and justice. Its reading has reinforced my abiding respect for Gillian Trigg and deepened my concern as to whether we will ever be so lucky to have a person in this position who has the courage to speak up for those who are disempowered.
