Pat Giles was dedicated to improving the lives of the disadvantaged. As an ALP Senator in the Hawke and Keating governments, she entered Parliament, not as a raw recruit, but as an experienced trade unionist, policy maker, feminist campaigner and grassroots activist. This is the story of a woman whose determination never faltered, whose work ethic never flagged, the story of an activist working from within the established order to effect social change.
