Personal Quote:

"Most of my decisions are based on relationships. It's one of the reasons I never went to America and tried to carve out a career over there. I've been in love with my partner since I was 22, I've been a stepmother since I was 22, I've had a daughter for the past three years, I've got close ties with my family and the other families I've inherited. That defines who I am". See more »

Trivia:

She champions many human rights issues in Australia, and has been a patron of A Just Australia - a campaign for refugee programs - since September 2002. She has spoken publicly to challenge the Australian government's line on asylum seekers. See more »
