"This is the remarkable portrait of an influential woman: establishment yet reformist, a staunch individualist who also carefully cultivated a network of powerful contacts.
Beryl Beaurepaire was a founding member of the Liberal Party of Australia, and a close ally of Malcolm Fraser's. She played a key role in the Liberal Party across three decades, using her political influence to promote social change for women. A proud feminist, she worked to promote equality and opportunity for women in political life, in the workplace, in organisations and in the community. this often put her in conflict with members of her own side of politics."
