Gillian Triggs on "Speaking Up"

Brunswick Bound

Event Date: 13 November 2018
Author / Presenters: Gillian Triggs

Gillian Triggs invites you to speak up!

As president of the Human Rights Commission, Gillian Triggs advocated for the disempowered, the disenfranchised and the marginalised. She withstood relentless political pressure and media scrutiny as she defended the defenceless for five tumultuous years.

"Speaking Up" shares with readers the values that have guided Triggs' convictions and the causes she has championed. She dares women to be a little vulgar and men to move beyond their comfort zones to achieve equity for all. And she will not rest until Australia has a Bill of Rights.

Triggs' passionate memoir is an irresistible call to everyone who yearns for a fairer world.

Find out more about this aspiring ballet dancer, dignified daughter of a tank commander and eminent law academic when Gillian Triggs joins us to speak about her life, career and her continuing fight for equality for all people.

Tickets include one copy of "Speaking Up" (rrp $45).

Refreshments are available to be purchased from venue.
