Known as "Red Jessie" to a generation of Australians, Jessie Street was a key figure in Australian political life for over 50 years. The only Australian woman delegate at the founding of the United Nations in 1945 and the initiator of the 1967 "Aboriginal" amendment of the Australian Constitution, her life was one dedicated to peace and justice. First published in 1966 and now revised and edited in 2004, this powerful autobiography truly reflects Jessie Street's energy, charm and practical humanitarianism.
