Summary
"One of the most inspiring women of our age, Mary Robinson has spent her life in pursuit of a fairer world. Now, for the first time, she reveals what lies behind the vision, strength and determination that has helped her to achieve so much for human rights around the globe. She describes the upbringing which gave her her strong sense of values and how, as her personal convictions grew, she came into painful conflict with her parents - marrying against their wishes and, later, helping to legalise contraception in a deeply Catholic Ireland. As a barrister she followed her conscience to win landmark cases advancing the causes of women and the marginalised against the prejudices of the day. And when - to the surprise of many - she became the first woman President of Ireland in 1990, she reinvigorated the role and helped put Ireland firmly on the international stage. Accepting the position of UN High Commissioner for Human Rights in 1997 was to prove an enormous challenge and here she does not shrink from describing the huge political difficulties she encountered among the many triumphs during her term."--Publisher's description
