"Sallyanne Atkinson AO has been a leader in political and business life for over four decades. A trailblazer for working mothers, she built a high-profile national career while raising five children. No Job for a Woman takes us from Sallyanne's wartime childhood in Sri Lanka to her first jobs as a journalist and TV personality. Driven to make a difference in her community, she entered local politics and went on to become the first female Lord Mayor of Brisbane. For the first time, Sallyanne shares the challenges and triumphs of a life devoted to public service in Australia and abroad, including her role in three Olympic bids. Told with warmth and humour, this inspiring story reveals how one woman defied the expectations of a generation."
