Living Politics

Author: Margaret Reynolds

From grass roots activism to national politics and international human rights advocacy, Margaret Reynolds’ life has been one of passionate commitment to social justice, which has seen her at the forefront of some major public policy reform.

Margaret’s activism has been a natural part of her life, as she moved from Tasmania, teaching children with disabilities, to Queensland, where she witnessed first hand the poor treatment of Indigenous people. Her gutsy determination around these issues took her from the Townsville City Council to Canberra as a Labor senator and on to her role with the United Nations – a journey from local political intrigue to the heights of international diplomacy.

Married to prominent historian Henry Reynolds, Margaret juggled public and family life at a time when women’s roles were changing. A committed feminist, she has worked for the equality of women for nearly forty years.
