The Woman Who Took Power in the ParkBook - 1997
Almost 30 years after the young graduate in a mini-skirt broke the mould and was elected to the Irish Senate, Mary Robinson is still considered by many an Irish role model. A human-rights lawyer and constitutional expert, the Mayo-born mother of three became the county's first woman Head of State when she was elected President in 1990. With the end of Robinson's term in office this book aims to exlore the private individual behind the public image, and discover what are the motivations behind her work.
