‘I was prime minister for three years and three days. Three years and three days of resilience. Three years and three days of changing the nation. Three years and three days for you to judge.’
Julia Gillard’s memoir, My Story, chronicles what life was really like as Australia’s first female Prime Minister. The book details what it was like to manage a hung parliament, build a diverse and robust economy, create an equitable and world-class education system, ensure a dignified future for Australians with disabilities, all while attending to international obligations and building strategic alliances for the future.
It was published by Random House Australia in September 2014.
My Story was shortlisted for the ‘2015 Biography of the Year’ award.
In June 2015 a second edition of My Story was published by Vintage Australia as a trade paperback.
