Thoughtful and inspirational, Speaking Out: Australian Women Talk About Success is a collection of conversations with Australian women from all walks of life who have achieved success in the arts, politics, business, education, or in their personal lives. It is an honest account of the sacrifices and challenges thesse women have faced along the way, and of the personal and professional rewards of pursuing their dreams.
