Description - Gravity by Mary Delahunty
For 3 years and 3 days Julia Gillard, Australia's 27th Prime Minister defied political gravity. From the start she walked a political tightrope. The first female Prime Minister, leading a minority government corroded by internal undermining, Julia Gillard juggled these obstacles until June 26, 2013.
How did she do it? And why did she fascinate an international audience so much? Julie Guillard presented a different face of power and drew from anxious corners a deep seam of sexism. This insightful book explores the astonishing resilience of Australia's first female prime minister and the changing precarious nature of political leadership. With unparalled access to Julia Gillard for her last 6 months in office, Mary Delahunty presents a unique, candid and highly personal view of the real Julia Gillard.
