Speaking Up description

As President of the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission, Gillian Triggs embodied grace under pressure as she came under increasingly hysterical criticism for her unflinching advocacy of the victims of Australia’s human rights abrogations.  Her memoir Speaking Up offers a lucid account of her time in the line of fire, and a compelling critique of those who seek to dodge both our international obligations and scrutiny of the consequences.

Chair: Rick Sarre
