Here is Roma Flinders Mitchell, 1913–2000, a life spanning a century that transformed the position of women, changes she led. She was the first woman chancellor of an Australian university, the first woman in Australia to be made a Queen’s Counsel and to be appointed a judge in a superior court and the first woman Governor of an Australian State. Roma Mitchell’s life is also a story about contradictions. A life-long and devout Catholic, her religion aligned her with Irish working-class Outsiders, yet she gained a position at the heart of the Protestant Establishment, in a world almost exclusively of men.
