In response to a recent story in the Womens Weekly magazine I’ve decided to run some of my own profiles on prominent women in the anti-unconventional gas and coal social movements. These are from interviews I conducted for the WW, when they agreed to hire me as a researcher.
These stories however, are a little more in-depth and dare I say it, political, without the constraints of that mainstream publication. It’s interesting to note that all these women remark upon the unifying effect of these campaigns upon communities – surely one of the truly positive knock on effects, and one that has corrupt politicians and corpulent corporations shaking in their boots.
The first of these is on Julie Lyford, of Gloucester NSW.
